Leon Underwood (1890 - 1975) Limited Edition Fine Art Prints
Leon George Claude Underwood was born in London in 1890. His father was a print dealer and after his schooling he joined his father at their shop in Paddington, copying and repairing prints. It was through this activity that he got to know the work of Blake who was to be a big influence on his work. In 1910 he gained a scholarship to the Royal Academy where he studied life drawing and painting. He taught for a short time at the Royal Academy before moving to his life-long studio in Hammersmith. He founded the Brook Green School of Drawing and among his students was Henry Moore. He was working as a linocutter, painter, etcher, wood-engraver and sculptor. He wrote many articles and several books and travelled widely. From the 1920s on he exhibited widely through Britain and had a retrospective show in Colchester in 1969. He died in London in 1975.
