The painter and printmaker Craigie Aitchison CBE RA (1926-2009) is best-known for his spare compositions and intense, luminous palette. His subject-matter is equally distinctive - single flowers, Bedlington terriers, sheep and crucifixions - rendered, as in the Italian religious icons that he so admired, in simple but powerful forms. These hallmarks are readily present in Aitchison's prints, most of which are the legacy of his longstanding relationship with the technicians at Advanced Graphics, London. All the prints are brought together for the first time in this handsome catalogue raisonne, which also includes an introduction by Andrew Lambirth exploring the importance of printmaking in Aitchison's career.
