Showcasing galleries, dealers and print publishers from across the UK, Europe and USA, LOPF is the perfect place to engage with experts and artists. This year to coincide with Renaissance Impressions in The Sackler Wing of Galleries, a number of old master exhibitors at LOPF feature chiaroscuro woodcuts on their stands. All prints are for sale, by artists such as Rembrandt, Goya and Picasso to Francis Bacon, David Hockney RA and Grayson Perry RA.

Norman Stevens ARA: Selected Prints
In the Tennant Gallery and Council Room
26 Feb - 25 May 2014
This spring we present the much admired prints of Norman Stevens ARA, an artist who originally trained as a painter alongside John Loker, David Hockney RA and David Oxtoby in the 1950s at Bradford College of Art.
A master of the medium, Stevens taught himself printmaking in the early 1970s and in the process, found an art form that perfectly suited his meticulous and subtle approach. Exploring the landscape and built environment, his prints make use of colour, light and shade to powerful and often haunting effect. Human presence is always suggested but never shown, a quality that the art critic, William Packer, has likened to a ‘game of hide-and-seek with the real world’.
