My favourite printmaker: Angie Lewin

Angie Lewin, from St Jude’s Gallery in North Norfolk has already been mentioned before at ATELIER TALLY, but I couldn’t resist updating ATELIER TV with some more on this wonderful printmaker.

Her work reminds me of Lucienne Day, the wife of furniture designer Robin Day. Lucienne and Robin pioneered a new world for Britain and are often remembered most for the Festival of Britain in 1951 where they inspired so many future designers. Margaret Howell and Angie Lewin are the most obvious to me, but I do consider them closely linked to British furniture manufacturers Ercol from the same period.

Back to Angie, her work is available online and is a perfect gift for lovers of 1950s British design.

Enjoy…
