Artist: Cyril Power
The book assesses Cyril Power’s achievement as a dynamic avant-garde printmaker, and shows how in his work the potential of linocut printmaking as a semi-abstract language was realised to an impressively original degree. It is the first book to establish Power as an extraordinarily creative printmaker in his own right, cataloguing and illustrating in colour for the first time all 46 of his linocuts. Philip Vann’s accompanying essay gives us for the first time a thorough understanding of Power’s work, putting it firmly into a contemporary context.
