Modern Times

British Prints from the 1920s and ‘30s

In the 1920s and ‘30s, a group of artists in England turned to the new medium of linoleum block print to depict the rapid pace of life in an increasingly mechanized society. This exhibition presents their images of city streets, underground stations, sports and leisure activities, in a celebration of speed itself.  Using simplified geometric shapes and sharp colors they convey the energy and dynamism of modern technology with a vivid graphic impact.
