Artist(s) Biographies:

This is the first book on artist and printmaker Helena Markson. Her life and work are an important part of the story of post-war printmaking.

In the early 1960s Markson worked alongside artist Birgit Skiold as co-director for the first open-access Fine Art Printmaking Workshop in London. Markson exhibited her prints in many of the important print exhibitions at the time, often the only woman to exhibit work alongside printmakers such as Edward Bawden, Michael Rothenstein and Julian Trevelyan. In the mid 1960s Markson made a series of prints to document Liverpool’s changing urban environment. This led to work with pioneering print publishers Editions Alecto. Markson moved to Israel in 1970 where she helped to establish the art department at the University of Haifa and the Fine Art Print Studios.
