Alistair Grant (1925-1997) is best known as a printmaker who experimented in blending print techniques in the 1970s and 80s. Working in the print department of the Royal College of Art, London from the 1960s onwards, he taught printmaking to students, many of whom went on to become some of the UK’s most widely recognised artists. After retiring from everyday teaching he became Emeritus Professor of Printmaking at the college.

Throughout his career he drew inspiration from Normandy, particularly the region around Etaples where his mother came from. He was a regular visitor there, the shapes and forms of the beaches and harbours (Boulogne in particular) providing limitless ideas for his work. Coupled with a vivacious palette his paintings and prints provide a colourful French counterpoint to that produced by the St Ives artists on the other side of the Channel.
