Cyril Power Limited Edition Prints
Celebrated Artist and print-maker Cyril Power was born in London in 1872. He was the eldest child of an architect father and a mother who encouraged the young Power's interest in the arts particularly in drawing, painting and also in music.
The young Cyril Power followed in his father's footsteps and became an architect and worked in his father's practice where he excelled. In 1900 won The Sloane Medallion, awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London for his design for an art school.
Architecture was the subject of most of Power's early linocut prints but with Power's and Sybil Andrew's posters on the sporting venues the interest in speed and movement in his work first began to evolve. This vorticist's concern, not only with speed and movement, but with the modern and the urban world, Power was to develop further: in his most popular fine art prints ‘Whence and Whither?', ‘The Merry-Go-Round' and in the exceptional ‘Tube Station' and ‘The Sunshine Roof' - amongst his best works - all these key ingredients are present. Cyril continued to teach and work, in oils, principally, after World War Two, and produced an impressive ninety paintings in the last years of his life. He died in London in May 1951.
