Item details
The School of Life have created this wonderful set of notebooks in honour of The English Modernists.

Each notebook has an introduction to a great English Modernist artist on the inside of the front page, their name is beautifully printed on the cover and the pages (either plain, gridded or lined) are empty for your own works.

When artists like Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson were starting out, in the 1920s and 1930s, English Modernism seemed like a contradiction. You could make traditional English art or you could embrace the Modernism coming from Paris, Berlin and Vienna. But you couldn’t be loyal to both.

One of the things art can do for us is reveal false dichotomies. That is, show us when we are really faced with a failure of imagination, rather than a real impossibility. It was possible to love the simpler, authentic habits of provincial English life and be a modernist. But it took the imagination and determination of some pioneer artists to show how.

A set of three paper-bound notebooks with either plain, gridded or lined paper
Each book contains 64 pages
Dimensions: 125x178mm with yellow contrast stitching.
