Edward Bawden (1903-1989)
One of the finest British artists of the 20th Century, Bawden was a painter, illustrator and graphic artist. Best known for his stunning linocuts, he also produced book covers, posters and ceramic designs for Wedgwood.
Bawden worked as war artist, was awarded a CBE in 1946 and was an Associate of the Royal Academy.
Bawden’s pieces for Wedgwood date from 1952 and were designed for the Orient Line shipping company. They depict a Heartsease or Viola and are amongst his finest designs.
This plate here is the smaller of the designs and measures 6 1\4 inches in diameter. Can be included with the teacup and saucer to make a beautiful trio.
In very good condition.
