Margaret Howell first exhibited a selection of landscape paintings by Peter Yates at Wigmore Street in 2010. We now offer a series of numbered limited edition fine art prints selected from works shown at the exhibition. Each print is hand numbered and hand embossed.
Peter Yates (1920-1982) was one of the founders of the innovative architectural partnership Ryder and Yates, which brought modern design to the North East of England in the post war period. But also he was an artist, painting throughout his life, often exploring ideas related to architectural form. Some works explore the juxtaposition of bold geometric shapes that characterised the practice’s architecture. Other works celebrate the relationship of traditional buildings. On many occasions his art works were incorporated within buildings in the form of large murals. He also contributed bold graphic designs for exhibition stands and commercial premises. These works were either hand painted by Yates himself, or printed on to Formica.
Prints produced by The Bookroom Art Press and made to Fine Art Trade Guild Standards.
