Gordon House (1932-2004), 'Mumbles Pontardawe Penrhos', published 1984. Each signed and inscribed proof for Lis (Elisabeth Frink), ten titled and dated 84 in pencil. Eleven (ten plus title) etchings and aquatints on rivs paper, in original folio. "Gordon designed for the pop world. He worked for the Beatles, designing their White album and the back of the Sergeant Pepper album, for which his longtime friend Peter Blake designed the front ... ... During the 1960s and 1970s, his canvasses and prints reflected the dramatic tensions of his graphic design; by the 1980s, Wales had become his constant subject matter. The surface, texture and colour of his paintings softened. No doubt, he needed to pay homage to the places and the people who had shaped him, just as he always paid homage to the artists for whom he designed." -Bernard Cohen, The Guardian 10th April 2004.
