The name Birgit Skiøld is quite well known as an internationally reknowned Grand Prize for printmaking. But she herself was also a well regarded Swedish woman artist, printmaker, painter and photographer well ahead of her time. She played a significant and lasting role in the development of British printmaking begining in the 1950s when she founded of one of the first printmaking workshops in Britain. Later Skiøld was a founding member of the UK Printmakers Council (1965).

These acheivements however should not overshadow Skiøld’s work itself. Her original prints according to current reviews, ‘are freshly abstract and mysteriously simple.’ This formal simplicity is quite welcome to eyes made weary by the age of visual saturation. Herein lies the essence of Skiold’s artistic talent.

Her fine etchings are now included in many major public collections in Britain, Europe and the United States.
