Marlborough Graphics opens an exhibition of prints by R B Kitaj
Barcelonetta, 1979, lithograph, 78.8 x 56.6 cm.
LONDON.- Marlborough Graphics is holding an exhibition of prints by R B Kitaj to mark the publication of Kitaj Prints, a catalogue raisonne, by the British Museum Press.

Written by Jenny Ramkalawon, the text discusses the complexity of these intriguing prints and explores them within the context of his paintings.

The show comprises 40 prints, covering four decades, from the 1960s to the mid 1990s, when Kitaj left England, his adopted homeland, in 1994 for America, after his ill-fated retrospective exhibition at the Tate.

Kitaj was a major figure on the London Art scene during the 60s and 70s, and it was during this time he met the master printer Chris Prater of Kelpra Studios. Their close collaboration produced some of the most impressive prints of Kitaj’s career, from the collage-like screenprints to the enlarged book covers from the series In our time.

In the 1980s with increasing emphasis on figurative art, and drawing the human form Kitaj began to work with Aldo Crommelynck in Paris, producing a series of self portraits and in the 1990s he worked with master Printer Stanley Jones of Curwen Press where he embarked on a series of characters from the Old Testament.
