Artwork description

We are proud to present this five-colour lithograph produced by Leonard Rosoman at the Curwen Studio. It was published as part of the Curwen Studio’s 1971 portfolio of eight follies, one copy of which is in the Tate Gallery collection.

Leonard Rosoman studied at the Royal Academy Schools before going on to teach at the Royal College of Art, London. During this time he worked alongside Carel Weight and Ruskin Spear, and tutored David Hockney and Stephen Farthing.

An example of Rosoman’s elegant, multi-figured paintings can be seen in the main restaurant of the Royal Academy at Burlington House, home to his satirical mural Upstairs and Downstairs. Painted in 1986 when the artist was in his early seventies, it juxtaposes two scenes: guests arriving for the private view of the Summer Exhibition and below, in a more sombre palette, Royal Academy Schools students drawing from life.
