Tadek Beutlich is best known as an weaver of extraordinary tapestries but he also produced some large and very striking prints, most printed in the 1960s and 70s with editions Alecto. Originally from Poland he also studied in Germany and Italy before graduating in textiles from Camberwell School of Art and Crafts in 1950. He subsequently taught at Camberwell from 1951 to 1974. You can see a selection of his prints at Emma Mason british prints.

Just popped by to say hi, then sad to read of Tadek's death, but glad to be reminded of a lifetime of great work. Hope you are well, your siutcase of cards looks great.
