In 2007 the Nightingale Project presented an exhibition of the ‘Lyons Lithographs’ of 1947 – 1955.
In those post-war years, catering giant J. Lyons & Co. commissioned, to hang in their tea shops, three series of lithographs from some of Britain’s most popular artists – including Edward Bawden, John Piper, John Minton, William Scott and John Nash.
Our exhibition was the most comprehensive exhibition of these prints since the 1950s, and was opened by David Gentleman, one of the artists who contributed a print to the series.
Illustrator Peter Bailey created this limited edition giclée print especially for our exhibition, and we are offering the remaining prints from that edition for sale £125. The print was made in an edition of 80, and each print is hand-signed and numbered by artist.
