1) Cornish Well; 2) Printing Sunday Times by Edward Bawden

Edward Bawden’s work is the cornerstone of the Fry Art Gallery’s collection – an assortment of 20th-century works drawn from the members of the Great Bardfield group of north-west Essex artists.


1) Watercolour; 2) Linocut
1) 50 x 63 cm; 2) 41 x 69 cm
Art Fund grant:
£2,950 ( Total: £6,680)
Acquired in:
Private collection

Endeavoring to tell the artist’s story as fully as possible, the gallery’s holdings span the length of his career. Cornish Well is a bold painting using few colours which emphasise the landscape depicted. Bawden's watercolours were often produced on holidays and show a different side of the artist. The Printing of the Sunday Times is a particularly strong example of the artist’s well-known commercial linocuts.


Private collection.
