Exhibition of linocuts by Chris Brown

English Vernacular
An exhibition of prints by Christopher Brown
St Jude’s Gallery, Norfolk

This exhibition has just opened at St Jude’s, a gallery in Itteringham, Norfolk, which I have been meaning to visit for some time. Chris Brown learnt the art of the linocut from Edward Bawden and there is a clear influence in his prints, not only in the subject matter (English Vernacular sums it up pretty neatly) but also in the humour.

Here are a few of my favourites. Click on the links below each image to visit the St Jude’s site, where you can buy the prints.

Mr Pickles


Rude Cat
I’m not usually a fan of prints of cats, but I like this one for its in-your-face cheek. Incidentally, Bawden also loved cats.

English Vernacular runs until 28th May. St Jude’s also stock/represent Angie Lewin, Mark Hearld, Chris Brown and the ubiquitous Rob Ryan.
