Description

John Tunnard trained as a designer at the RCA (1919-21). In the twenties he worked for a number of textile companies. He moved to Cornwall and started a hand-blocked silk business with his wife. He taught design at Penzance School of Art. Holiday is perhaps the most abstract of the School Prints. Read considered Tunnard a Surrealist at heart. 'A painting by John Tunnard begins in the order of nature; it traverses the phantasms of the imagination; and then it ends in the order of art, which is an analogy of the mystical mathematics of the City of Heaven.' (1997, Alan Peat and Brian Whitton, John Tunnard: His Life and Work, Scolar Press) To view this print and others from the series visit http://www.schoolprints.com\ What is Goldmark?
