Bawden, as painter, printmaker, draughtsman and graphic designer, was among Britain’s most original artists. His unique vision of the world around him resulted in a style characteristic of an English eccentric. In a career spanning over 60 years, Bawden produced some of the most influential designs of the 20th century, from advertising material for Shell to ceramics for the Orient Line.”

BibliOdyssey have some images of his work.

The Cecil Higgins Gallery holds a major archive of his work.
