Stephen Harwood

Characteristic Detail at Church Stretton, 2011, graphite pencil on paper, 21x15cm
One Kind of Shropshire Scenery, 2011, graphite pencil on paper, 21x15cm

These drawings are from a series based on images from John Piper and John Betjeman's 1951 Shell Guide to Shropshire; a beautiful old book that has become the starting point for a new series of work by Harwood. The book is ‘a charming reminder of 1950's Britain, with its matter-of-fact gazetteer of various villages and hamlets, listings of early closing days, and large houses and families.’
