About the Artist
Peter Brook (1927-2009) lived and worked primarily in West Yorkshire and took his inspiration from the rural landscape surrounding him. His paintings show the natural beauty of the Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales as well as the agricultural and industrial character of the area. He often painted himself into his pictures, sometimes accompanied by his dog Shep.
Born near Holmfirth, he originally trained as a teacher at Goldsmiths College in London and taught art at Sowerby Bridge Grammar School before embarking on a career as an artist.
In 1960 he had his first solo exhibition at Wakefield City Art Gallery which received excellent reviews, and he was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1962. He was represented by Agnew's Gallery in London from 1969 and became a successful artist with sell-out exhibitions in London, America and Australia.
Peter died in 2009 but his work continues to be admired and collected around the world.
About the Prints
In 1976 Agnew's commissioned Peter to produce a series of prints titled 'Twelve Months of the Year'. The set of 12 lithographs was printed in 1978 in an edition of 150 by the Curwen Studio, London under the direction of Stanley Jones. They are printed on mould-made Saunders paper and are signed and numbered by the artist.
The Tate acquired a full set of these prints which can be viewed in their archives.
The prints on sale here have been acquired directly from Agnew's Gallery.
All prints measure 22.5" x 30.5" (paper size) and 20" x 28" (image size) and are sold unframed.
