Artist’s Proof – Master printer Stanley Jones MBE and the Curwen Studio

In our occasional series Artist’s Proof we publish stories about printmaking and the work of the Society’s printmaker members.  Today we bring you a fascinating broadcast originally aired on BBC Radio 4 two years ago this month. In The Print Master producer Sarah Jane Hall follows presenter and artist Susan Aldworth to the Curwen Studio near Cambridge during her stint as Artist in Residence. Susan is initiated in the art of lithography by the print master himself, Stanley Jones, who helped to set up the studio in the 1950s and whose clients “read like a roll-call of the 20th century’s great British artists”.
