SPEED AND COLOUR

British Lino Cuts from the 1930s

1st Feb 2014 - 30th Mar 2014

Speed and Colour showcases 30 prints (1922 to 1936) from the Grosvenor School linocuts in the Te Papa collection. All of the artists in the exhibition were associated with the Grosvenor School of Art and attended classes taught by Claude Flight. Influenced by the Italian Futurists, these prints convey the optimism of the Roaring '20s and the '30s, with images of cars, machinery, sports and daily life all captured in vivid colour, with a striking sense of speed and movement.

Developed and presented by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa
