Angela Newberry is a prolific printmaker who has been working with linocuts, relief prints and screen prints since the 1950s. Her work is largely landscape driven, focusing on the topographies, climate, and eco-cultures of rural parts of the world. Like her tutor Edward Bawden, her aesthetic is one which mixes naivety with highly skilled processes, to create an appealing charm that artfully captures her passion for geographical place. ‘Land of Milk and Honey II’ depicts the Yugoslavian countryside, with rolling fields of yellow and green, striated pink crops and a hazy, clouded sky. The image proffers the bounteousness of the Yugoslavian land - the land of milk and honey - with its diverse mixture of market and agricultural corps, growing side by side. Newberry’s use of bright colour and her skilled compositional technique make this an exceptional and beautiful print.
