Perhaps best known for creating intimate and tender romantic scenes with the view from his studio in St Ives as an evocative backdrop, and drawing on the influences of preceding artists, such as Picasso and Nicholson, Price has more recently been absorbed in ongoing series’ of ‘Woodland’-, and ‘Waves’-themed drypoint and engraved relief prints.
Price grew up in Cornwall and studied at Falmouth specialising in printmaking, and then on to Winchester School of Art. On leaving college he went on to work in a London etching studio, learning the skills of professional printmaking. Price was elected a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers when only 28 years old, and elected Vice President from 2013–18. His work is globally recognised, and he has won several national printmaking awards. His works are held in many public, corporate and private collections, including:
V & A Museum, London; Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; Guangdon Museum of Art, China; Bank of England, London; His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent.
Note: Price is an acclaimed master printmaker and is one of the gallery’s permanently represented artists.
