Product story

Primarily a painter, Sydney Lee was widely acclaimed for his prints of landscapes, town scenes and historic buildings, executed in a remarkable variety of sizes and media. He travelled throughout Britian and Europe in search of subjects both epic and picturesque, and his fusion of japanese and European influences elevated printmaking to high art.
This book written by Robert Meyrick, a leading authority on printmaking, accompanies the third exhibition of past Royal Academician printmakers. It offers a long overdue appraisel of Lee's contribution to British art by examining his varied output and placing his work in the context of artistic practice in Britain and beyond. This raisonne establishes for the first time an accurate chronolgy of the artist's printed oeuvre.
24.5 x 23.5 cms, 191 pages, 170 illustrations.
