English Modernist Notebooks

3 Notebooks, 3 Thinkers

History is filled with some fascinating 'schools of thought' dedicated to tackling life's big problems in distinctive ways. We've created this exquisite set of notebooks in honour of The English Modernists.  

Each notebook carries an introduction to a great English Modernist artist on the inside front page, their name beautifully printed on the cover - and is otherwise empty for your own projects.

English Modernists featured in these notebooks: Hepworth, Moore, Nicholson.

When artists like Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson were starting out – in the 1920s and 1930s – English Modernism seemed like a contradiction. You could make traditional English art or you could embrace the Modernism coming from Paris, Berlin and Vienna. But you couldn’t be loyal to both. Either you were fond of villages, fields and family life or you were attracted to abstract forms and adventurous materials. 

One of the things art can do for us is reveal false dichotomies. That is, show us when we are really faced with a failure of imagination, rather than a real impossibility. It was possible to love the simpler, authentic habits of provincial English life and be a modernist. But it took the imagination and determination of some pioneer artists to show how.
