Join us on Tuesday 5th July, 6-8pm for the Private View of a retrospective of prints produced over four decades by Scottish artist Peter Howson. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Howson was a focal member of the group of young artists to emerge from the Glasgow School of Art during the 1980s dubbed the New Glasgow Boys, and one of his generation’s leading figurative painters.
Printmaking has proved to be a highly significant aspect of Howson’s output over the years, often using the compositions formed within the prints as preparations for major paintings. The relative speed of production of techniques such as lithography and the chance effects of the monoprinting process have lent an urgency and vitality to his practice, at times providing the catalyst for the development of new ideas.
