About The Artist
Graham Clarke, artist, author, illustrator and humourist, is one of Britain’s most popular and best-selling printmakers. He has created some five hundred images of English rural life and history, of the Bible and of the Englishman’s view of Europe.
Born in 1941, Clarke’s upbringing in the austerity of war-time and post-war Britain, made him reliant on his own imaginative resources. Responding to the comedy of everyday life, he brings his own unique brand of humour to his interpretation of past and present history through the eyes of the common man.
Examples of Graham’s work are held by public and royal collections, including the Victoria & Albert museum, the British Museum, the Tate Gallery and the National Library of Scotland in the UK, as well as in Dublin, Washington DC, New York and Hiroshima. Many, many more are in private collections all over the world.
