Emma Mason - The life and work of Artist and Printmaker Walter Hoyle
Emma Mason will be talking about the life and work of the renowned Artist and Printmaker Walter Hoyle.
Hoyle lived and worked for many years in Great Bardfield, Essex and worked closely with the great Printmaker Edward Bawden.
Hoyle taught at St. Martins School of Art from 1951-60, the Central School of Art and Crafts from 1960-64 and he then became an inspiring teacher at the Cambridge School of Art from 1964 until he retired in 1985.
In addition to commissioned prints, Hoyle designed wallpapers and painted murals for the Natural History Museum and for the Sealink ship St. David. His work is in the collections of the Tate Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, The British Museum, Kettles Yard and the Fry Art Gallery.
Between1965-66 Hoyle made a series of ten linocuts in an edition of 75 printed on Japanese Hosho paper in his Essex studio. They were known as 'the 'Cambridge Series'. Emma Mason Prints stock a small collection of these prints that come directly from the Walter Hoyle archive.
Come along and listen to Emma talk about this fascinating and inspirational man at the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale on Saturday 24 September 2016.
