This display explores prints by the British artist Norman Stevens (1937-1988), from the first black and white etchings he produced to his vividly coloured, large-scale screen-prints of the 1980s.
Trained as a painter, Stevens was one of the 'Bradford Mafia' – an exceptionally gifted cohort of students at Bradford College of Art that included David Hockney RA, Michael Vaughan, John Loker and David Oxtoby.
Taking up printmaking in the early 1970s, Stevens taught himself the various techniques of this medium including the complicated process of mezzotint. Printmaking suited Stevens’s meticulous approach, enabling him to produce images of great precision and subtlety.
