Southampton 1937. 4,000 Basque children arrived on the ship Habana, evacuees escaping the bombing of Euskadi (the Basque lands), their home in Northern Spain. Guernica had been completely destroyed by the Nazi Luftwaffe - operating under the policy of Franco's Nationalist movement - and many British people were appalled, calling for the government to accept as many child evacuees as possible. At first this did not happen, as the British government held to its policy of non-intervention, but later it agreed to allow them into the country. One of a series of works depicting the part played by Britain in the Spanish Civil War. This linocut print is a limited edition one of only 8 to be produced. The print image itself measures W11" x H8".

But influences that shaped my vision and perceptions have appeared since my childhood in 1960s North Wales, big cities like Manchester, London, Lisbon & Prague and provincial towns in Portugal, Eastern Europe and the West Country ...
