Signed print by Frank Brangwyn depicting a street scene in the aftermath of the London Blitz. Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) was born in Belgium to British parents, and received his artistic training in Britain. He worked for William Morris as a young man, and like him explored a wide array of artistic media throughout his career. Though his work includes such diverse categories as glassware, furniture, and pro-British WWI posters, perhaps his best-known works are the murals commissioned by the House of Lords in 1926, later rejected by the peers, and finally acquired for the Guildhall in Swansea, Wales. During his lifetime, he was one of the world's foremost artists. He was the first living artist to receive a retrospective at the Royal Academy in London. While his reputation suffered after his death, his work has been reconsidered in more recent years, and a high-profile exhibition marked the 50th anniversary of his death in 2006. Condition: Good. Some discoloration from handling, aging adhesive, and other factors to margins, but these do not impact the print itself, or the signature. The print is mounted in an unusual way in that the edges of the sheet of paper have been wrapped around the edges of a board and glued to the back, which currently gives the print a slightly wavy appearance. This could likely be corrected if the backing were removed, which could be done with minimal paper loss. Dimensions 26 x 36.5 inches.
