Graham Clarke, artist, author, illustrator and humorist, is one of Britain's most popular and bestselling printmakers. He has created some five hundred images of English rural life and history 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.
He has attracted universal admiration for his revival of beautiful, hand-coloured prints in the
tradition of Thomas Rowlandson. The famous 'arched top' etchings, with which Graham Clarke
established a widely successful reputation in Britain and overseas, came to public attention in 1973 when the first of these, Dance by the Light of the Moon, was exhibited in London at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show, and sold out.
