A complete survey of Bridget Riley’s early prints (1962-1968). The presentation includes all of her early black and white screenprints, starting with Primitive Blaze (1962) through to Winged Curve (1966).
These concise, geometric works mark the start of the artist’s exploration into visual sensation that continued throughout her career. After the mid-1960s, Riley gradually moved towards colour and the final work in the exhibition is the complete portfolio of Nineteen Greys(1968), which marks this crucial transition.
Shown alongside Riley’s graphic work are some of the finest examples of Classical marble sculpture and fine Regency design. Spanning an expanse of time, style and technique, these prints and objects share a fundamental formal rigour.
