Painter, illustrator and author Graham Clarke, is best known for his beautiful, hand-coloured prints of rural Britain. Inspired by Samuel Palmer, Clarke's landscapes are marked by a romantic sense of community as well as religious, social and family values. He studied illustration and printmaking under Edward Bawden, from whom he learned a great deal about composition and technique. Clarke's reputation for arched top etchings was established in 1973, when 'Dance by the Light of the Moon', sold out at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show. Clarke's work can be found in a number of national collections and on the walls of private homes all over the world.
