The accomplished colour woodcuts of Kenneth Broad record daily life in and around London and parts of northern France during the 1920ís and early 1930ís.

Kenneth Stephen Broad was born at Stamford Brook in west London and went on to train at the Westminster School of Art. Like the outstanding etcher William Walcot, Kenneth Broad became a London based architect by profession, whose passion outside the rigid framework of draftsmanship was original printmaking Ė a field of art in which he was particularly gifted. He exhibited together with William Giles and Ethel Kirkpatrick as a member of The Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society at the Royal Academy in London and was an early member of the Colour Woodcut Society, becoming its president in the mid-1930ís.

Kenneth Broadís earliest Royal Academy exhibits date from around 1922 and by the early 1930ís his colour woodcuts were being exhibited and handled by the famous dealers P. & D. Colnaghi in Londonís Bond Street. In 1926 he exhibited his colour woodcut of ďA Sussex FarmĒ at the 7th International Printmakers Exhibition in Los Angeles. Despite declared editions of 150 impressions each, Broadís colour woodcuts are now comparatively scarce. After his death, all of Kenneth Broadís woodcut blocks were destroyed by his son, as stipulated in his will. [more]
