Text by Robert Meyrick.
This fully illustrated and annotated catalogue raisonné of the prints of Sydney Lee (1866–1949) offers a long-overdue appraisal of Lee’s contribution to British art. Primarily a painter, Lee was widely acclaimed during his lifetime for his virtuoso prints of landscapes, town scenes, and historic buildings, executed in a remarkable variety of sizes and media. From the Colosseum in Rome to the summit of Mount Snowdon in Wales and the windmills of Kent, England, he traveled throughout Britain and Europe in search of subjects both epic and picturesque. A leading authority on printmaking and a committed collector of Lee’s prints, Robert Meyrick identifies the precise locations of these subjects and establishes an accurate chronology of Lee’s printed work.
Robert Meyrick is head of the School of Art and keeper of the School of Art Museum and Collections at Aberystwyth University in Wales. In 2001 he was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in recognition of his services to printmaking in Britain.
