Why are some prints unsigned by the artist?
It was not uncommon for Wilhelmina Barns-Graham to sign prints only as they left the studio. This practice was held widely by artists, either because they were not able to sign a full edition in one go, or prints were only printed to order (to save money on the printing and resolve issue of storing large numbers of prints). However, many of Barns-Graham’s last editions (Wind Series and Water Dance [Porthmeor] Series in particular) are unsigned as although they had been printed and delivered to the studio by the end of 2003, she died (in late January 2004) before she was able to sign them.
Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’s late flourish as a printmaker arose from an introduction to Carol Robertson and Robert Adam of Graal Press in 1998. Having begun to re-explore printmaking in 1991, Barns-Graham, now 86, was to start a new and extraordinary body of work. In the five years before her death, she produced 66 prints! Of these, twenty-three were not printed in her lifetime – “Leave these for the moment. You can print these up once I’m dead” she instructed Robertson. After marking up the screens and clipping them together, they were set them aside while Barns-Graham moved swiftly on to the next designs. Between 2006 and 2007, on the instruction of the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust, this collection was printed in small editions of 25 in order to be included in Ann Gunn’s catalogue raisonée of Barns-Graham’s prints, published that year by Lund Humphries*. Each print is estate stamped on the reverse and the edition number marked on bottom front left corner.
