Bartolomeu dos Santos

This exhibition shows a selection of the prints of Bartolomeu dos Santos (1931-2008) to commemorate his long association with the Slade and UCL as a student in the 1950s and as a teacher and Professor of Printmaking from the 1960s until his retirement in 1996. It will include early nudes, still-lifes and cityscapes made as a Slade student in the 1950s, and a series of spectacular imaginary architectural constructions from the 1970s inspired by the work of Piranesi and Jorge Luis Borges. More light-hearted works include menus and invitations to Slade parties from the 1990s.
