From the fourth school prints series. Printed in 1951 for the festival of Britain.

Edwin La Dell was involved alongside Brenda Rawnsley and the A.I.A (Artist's International Association) in the production, exhibition and distribution of twenty one lithographs celebrating 'The English Scene'. An advertisement in the A.I.A newsletter in 1951 invited artists to submit sketches for selection - Brenda Rawnsley as part of the selection committee chose La Dell as one of six contributors to produce work for the small fourth edition of the School Prints series - of which this is one.
Edwin La DellEdwin La Dell was born in Rotherham, the son of Thomas La Dell, a Sheffield-born bookbinder.

La Dell was appointed as an official war artist during the Second World War, working on both public murals and camouflage, but his best known works are those from the post-war era, in particular the lithographs he created for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, for the School Prints scheme, for Lyons Tea Rooms and his own series of Oxford, Cambridge, Kent and New York.

La Dell's work is currently held in many collections, including those of the Royal Academy and the Government Art Collection.
