Wilhelmina Barns-Graham was a pioneer of post-war British abstraction. Born in St Andrew’s, she studied at the Edinburgh College of Art before taking refuge at St Ives, Cornwall in 1940. There she met Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo, and her work became permanently associated with the School of St Ives where she maintained a studio until her death.

In her last decade, while in her eighties, Barns-Graham produced an astonishing number of prints.  For her, making prints was a liberating experience, one in which she could play with screens to create complete series of images. New ideas sprang constantly from these variations. She came to move so swiftly, outpacing the printers with whom she collaborated, that several 2003 editions were unsigned at the time of her death in 2004 while other images remained unprinted. These latter prints, all strictly mapped by the artist, came to be editioned posthumously to enable the completion of the publication ‘The Prints of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham : A Complete Catalogue’ (Lund Humphries, 2007) by Dr Ann Gunn.
