From The School Prints series. A set of 24 lithographs produced in the 1940s with the intention of bringing contemporary art to young children.

Printed in England at the Baynard Press.

Unframed in a presentation box.

The set of 24 lithographs would normally retail at £9,495.
Towards the end of the Second World War Brenda Rawnsley and her husband Derek had the idea of bringing contemporary art to young children who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to see ‘good’ work. Within a few years Brenda had set up School Prints Ltd to sell original lithographs to schools and had commissioned several of the most important living artists for her scheme.

The printing was undertaken by the Baynard Press from plates drawn by the artists, who were asked to use no more than six colours. The prints, being original lithographs, were often the first real art seen by young people of that period and are typical of their time.
