A doyen of Australian art and the painter famous for his Schoolgirl, Avonsleigh and Alice in Wonderland series of paintings.
Charles came to notice following his move to Melbourne in the mid-1940s, where he became friends with Joy Hester, John Perceval and Laurence Hope as well as gaining the support of critic and art patron John Reed.
His work met huge critical acclaim through his early Schoolgirl and Alice series.
Newly released Master Series set of six hand signed limited edition prints by Charles Blackman printed to perfection.
Below: Charles Blackman with printer/publisher David Sears and artist Gill Del-Mace.
"David Sears is a consummate traditional printmaker and has worked with some of the great artists of our time.
Now in the modern era, David and I subscribe to the latest technology to bring out what I describe as ‘pigment intention’. This means that Charles ‘colour emotion’ is intact.
This describes Charles emotional content displayed in the best archival pigment available to match his colours. This used to take up to 40 different screens and was definitely a labour of love.
Fortunately David Sears is a master technician when it comes to modern printing and we can apply this modern archival print technology to Charle's greatest works.
The best 100% cotton rag archival paper is used in this process and Charles has proofed each work with me along the way.
What a joy it is to finally share these iconic works, here made available for public release for the first time."
