Artist Name: Julian Trevelyan
Title: Julian Trevelyan: St James Park 1969 Pencil Signed Limited Edition Art Etching.
Julian Trevelyan, a British artist and founding member of the British Surrealist group in the 1930s, left a significant mark on the art world with his whimsical and fantastical creations. During his time at the University of Cambridge from 1928 to 1930, Trevelyan was captivated by the dreamlike imagery of French Surrealism, which led him to study at Stanley William Hayter's renowned Atelier 17 printmaking studio in Paris. There, he had the opportunity to meet influential artists such as Picasso, Miro, and Masson.
Trevelyan's artistic journey continued as he became one of the leading exponents of surrealism in England, exhibiting at the International Surrealist Exhibition in 1936. In the 1960s, he embarked on travels to India and the tropics, where he was inspired by the vibrant colors, light, and forms he encountered. These impressions became subjects for his prints upon his return to the studio. Trevelyan's etchings are relatively scarce, as he did not produce many prints, making them highly sought after by collectors.
The artwork in question is a pencil signed limited edition art etching titled "St James Park 1969" by Julian Trevelyan. Through his meticulous technique and imaginative vision, Trevelyan captures the essence of St James Park, creating a visual narrative that combines elements of humor, fantasy, and his distinctive surrealist style. This limited edition etching holds a unique place within Trevelyan's body of work, representing both his artistic prowess and the scarcity of his prints.
