Adrian Heath (1920 - 1992) was primarily known as a painter.

He was part of the group that included Victor Pasmore, Kenneth & Mary Martin, Anthony Hill and Robert Adams that was at the vanguard of abstract art of a constructive nature in England. In 1951 they arranged exhibitions of their work at the AIA Gallery and Gimpel Fils in London, where they were based, and approached the writer and critic Lawrence Alloway to define the aims of the group further by means of a book. Heath taught for many years at the Bath Academy of Art in Corsham and was associated with Newlyn and St. Ives, where he spent much time painting. He had numerous solo exhibitions at major galleries such as the Redfern and Hanover.

The original lithographic prints below are all signed on the reverse; were produced in 1976 and are entitled “Gastard”, after a village near Corsham.

I sold this print to the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre to be added to the "Creative Wiltshire" collection that they hold.

Here is the reverse.

Nice prints, Interesting that Adrian heath encouraged Terry Frost to paint and was instrumental in getting him to go to St Ives where the action was (good move), there are pieces by Victor Passmore in the constructivist exhibition at the Sainsbury centre, i will photograph them next time i visit . Were these prints sold as a series or sold separately?, Whereas Heaths oils are selling for quite large sums his gouache's seem quite reasonable in comparison.

I bought these and 2 or 3 others in a folio. They were sold as a set in this folio but I never knew if I had the full set.

I had them framed and had a couple on my own wall for several years before having a change around and selling them.

I know what you mean about the prices of his work and could be tempt to buy a gouache if I came across one.
