  • Sybil Andrews and the Grosvenor School Linocuts


Sybil Andrews (19 April 1898 21 December 1992) was a British-born (Bury St Edmunds) Canadian printmaker best known for her modernist linocuts. Andrews trained in England, and began producing and exhibiting linocuts from 1921 until 1939, working frequently with her informal partner Cyril Power. She also helped in the establishment and became the first secretary (19251928) of the The Grosvenor School of Modern Art. In England one of the largest collections in public ownership is held by St Edmundsbury Borough Council Heritage Service Bury St Edmunds. This collection includes a number of early water-colour paintings, executed while the artist was still living in Suffolk.
