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.
Andrew Lambirth is art critic for The Spectator. His many books include Nigel Hall: Sculpture and Works on Paper (2008) and Barbara Rae: Prints (2010), both published by the Royal Academy of Arts.
