Bernard Leach Lithos For Sale

We have just managed to get our hands on a number of Bernard Leach lithos by the Curwen Studio which we are selling, unframed, at £400 each (plus postage).  These are very rare and I think this batch is the last lot that are likely to be available - you will find them occasionally coming up at auction but not often.  We have Black Jar, Tree of Life, Lion Tile, and Fish Vase:




DESCRIPTION

Bernard Leach(1887‑1979) lithograph on paper, produced after Bernard Leach (in his 90's) visited the Curwen Studio encouraged by Janet leach and Barbara Hepworth . Leach worked with Stanley Jones to produce these stunning lithographs which are all signed and numbered in pencil by Leach himself. With failing eyesight, these few lithographic works represent possibly his last creative acts. The prints are in fabulous condition, having never been previously framed and stored in gallery archives. Copies were presented by Curwen Studio through the Institute of Contemporary Prints to the Tate Gallery Collection in 1975.

If you are interested in buying one please contact me on julia@leachpottery.com or phone 01736 799703 - we can take credit card or cheque but numbers are very limited.
