Works in stock

Alistair Grant (1925-1997) was born in London but as his mother was French he spent his childhood in Etaples, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, and he returned regularly to the family home there. Grant studied at Birmingham School of Art 1941-43 and at the Royal College of Art 1947-51. He was a highly influential printmaker and he taught print-making at the Royal College of Art from 1955, becoming head of the department in 1970. His work was exhibited widely, including many works at the Royal Academy from 1950, at the New English Art Club and with the Royal Society of British Artists from 1952 of which group he was elected a full member. He also had many one-man shows including at Zwemmer Gallery 1955-61, St George’s Gallery, Bear Lane Gallery Oxford, New Academy Gallery, Art First and The Scottish Gallery. Alistair Grant’s work is held by a number of public collections including the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Camden Borough Council, Reading Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, Royal College of Art, and extensively in the Government Art Collection. In the early years he was a figurative artist and later in life his work became increasingly abstract.
