Born in Sheffield in 1927, Derrick Greaves rose to prominence as a leading member of the "Kitchen Sink" group of painters in the 1950s and then moved from social realism to a more heraldic style that developed alongside Pop Art in the 1960s. He has represented Britain at the Venice Biennale and his paintings and prints are in major public and private collections throughout the world. A superb draughtsman, colourist and printmaker, he made this set of images especially to accompany Richard Mabey's evocative text.
