Anthony Benjamin (1931-2002)was born in Hampshire and studied art at the Regent Street Polytechnic. In 1955 he moved to a cottage near St Ives, where he showed an early appreciation of the American abstract expressionists. In 1958 he won a scholarship to study print making at S W Hayter's famous Paris studio Atelier17. He established himself as a prolific printmaker, producing his own work through his Hope (Sufferance) Press. Much of his work after this time shows the influence of American Abstract Expressionism, as he became more interested in form and colour rather than representing  physical objects. Benjamin went on to live in Italy and London with important exhibitions at the ICA in 1966, and at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, These three screenprints are from the Roxy Bias series published by Clarendon Graphics through the Institute of Contemporary Prints 1975.
