The Power of the Print: Leonard Beaumont Rediscovered

The Power of the Print: Leonard Beaumont Rediscovered
22 DEC — 14 SEPT
Museums Sheffield: Graves Art Gallery

Leonard Beaumont (1891–1986) was a prolific artist and designer, whose work has rarely received the attention it deserves.

Beaumont started his career at the Sheffield Daily Telegraph and attended evening classes at Sheffield School of Art. He began making prints in the 1920s, specialising in bold lino cuts and etchings influenced by the Vorticists.

Shortly before his death, Beaumont donated over 80 of his works to his home city. Focusing on his prints from the 1920s and 30s, this show highlights the dynamism of the period. The majority of these pictures have not been seen for almost thirty years.
