Iain MacNab Prints for Sale

Iain MacNab was educated in Edinburgh before studying at Glasgow School of Art and then Heatherley’s School of Art. He was the principal founder of The Grosvenor School of Modern Art. Macnab was an excllent draughtsman and his talents included wood engraving, linocut, lithography and painting. Iain Macnab tried to show the importance of the 'rhythm' of a composition, and the now so collectable Grosvenor School linocuts are based on that rhythm. MacNab's ideas are seen in the work of the teachers whom he gathered together at his school - among them Claude Flight, Cyril Power and Sybil Andrews. His first exhibited woodcuts date from 1927 and he exhibited at The Royal Academy, The Royal Scottish Academy, The Royal Glasgow Institute and The Royal Institute of Painters in Oil. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the V & A, the British Museum and the Ashmolean, Oxford
