Brick House

London: Design for Today, [2015]. Number 17 of 100 copies signed by the illustrator Alice Pattullo. The limited edition of this printed paper replica of English artist Edward Bawden's Brick House in Great Bardfield. For several years in the 1930s, Bawden shared Brick House with artist Eric Ravilious, his longtime friend from the Royal College of Art and the Curwen Press. "At weekends artist friends would visit, and they too settled in Great Bardfield, establishing a thriving artists' colony in this corner of North East Essex." This playful and charming model of the house includes paper dolls of Bawden, Ravilious, their cat, and detailed interiors featuring Bawden's original wallpaper designs and personal collections of art, books, and decorative objects. It was inspired by the midcentury printmaking of the Great Bardfield Artists. The folding house is printed on card stock, with color lithographed front and back, with a sheet of cut-out dolls and props laid in. Both the limited and trade editions are out of print. In fine condition. Measures 10 x 8.25 inches folded, 10 x 16.5 inches when open. Fine.
