Edition issued by Waddington Graphics, 1979. Note: Patrick Heron was one of the leading painters of the British abstract movement of the 1950's. In pre-war years he lived and worked in Cornwall. He was greatly inspired by the 'St. Ives' painters but after the war he moved his studio to London, exhibiting first at Redfern and then at Waddington. It was Leslie Waddington who stimulated his interest in printmaking. Over the period from the late 1950's he became world renowned for his use of brilliant and emotive colour linked to forms derived from still-life and landscape. His influence on the development of British abstract painting was recognised by his period as a trustee of the Tate Gallery from 1980 to 1987. 'Morning Red' is a beautiful example of his understanding of the interaction of colour and texture in his aquatint prints. Beautiful impression with superb rich colour. On wove paper.
