  • 1860-1940

Charles Bartlett was born in England in 1860. He began his education with the intention of becoming a chemist, but switched to fine art, enrolling at the Academy of Art in London at the age of twenty-three. From there he went to Paris to further his studies at the Academie Julian. After he lost his wife and infant son in childbirth, the artist spent a year traveling in Europe with fellow artist Frank Brangwyn. It was at this time that his work maintained a focus on the daily lives of peasant women and children, and began to hone his watercolor and drawing techniques. It wouldn't be until much later that Bartlett, now returned to England and remarried, would discover his love of printmaking and the landscape subject matter he would become known for.
In 1913 he and his wife traveled to Ceylon, Indonesia, and China to sketch and paint. 1915 hailed their arrival in Japan, where they met Austrian artist Fritz Capelari who introduced them to publisher Watanabe Shozaburo. Watanabe and Bartlett began a long collaboration in which Watanabe would turn the watercolor landscapes of Bartlett's into color woodcuts; soon, Bartlett himself would use Watanabe's studio to carve and create his own woodblocks.
In 1917, the Bartlett's traveled to Hawaii, intending to make a short visit. However, they fell in love with the landscape and community where they were visiting, and soon established their lives and Charles' career there. He became a co-founder of the Honolulu Print-makers and a prominent member of Hawaii's artistic community until his death in 1940 at the age of eighty.

  • 1936-

Kieff Antonio Grediaga was born in 1936 in Madrid, Spain. He began working as an apprentice in his father's cabinet making atelier at a young age, later going on to study technical drawing, industrial design and architecture. Kieff's works have been exhibited in galleries, fairs and institutions in Canada, the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Europe. Largely inspired by music, the stage and literature, Kieff's work has always been fueled by the quest to find himself through a study of space and time and by a relentless desire to experience, manifest and share what can be considered the state of freedom. Whether sculptural or graphic, his works are an intriguing embodiment of the lyrical relationship between mass, volumes, rhythm, movement and a profound intimate reflection on his own human condition. Kieff lives and work in Montreal where he continues to develop new works.

Krauze, Andrzej (1947- )

  • 1947-

Andrzej Krauze was born in a suburb of Warsaw on 7 March 1947. In 1967 he began studying painting and illustration at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Art, and in 1971, while still a student, he began contributing cartoons to the satirical magazine Szpilki and won first prize in a poster competition organized by the Polish National Theatre in Warsaw. He afterwards worked regularly as a poster-designer for the theater until 1973, when he graduated - his diploma submission, an animated cartoon film entitled The Flying Lesson, being censored by the authorities.

After leaving the Academy of Fine Art, Krauze travelled to Paris and London, but in 1974 returned to Warsaw, where he continued contributing to Szpilki and began work as political cartoonist on the weekly magazine Kultura. The context was one of heavy censorship. "Your first censor was your editor," Krauze recalled: "All material was sent to a special office several days before publication and, if they stopped something, it was not only a problem for you but for your editor too. The editor had to be a member of the Communist Party and it was very important for him not to have too much material stopped. If this happened, he was in trouble."

Krauze became a well-known figure in Poland, and across Europe. In 1980 he went to Amsterdam, where he worked as an illustrator for the newspaper Handelsblad, and then moved to Paris, contributing to L'Express, L'Expansion, Lire and L'Alternative. When Martial Law was declared in Poland in December 1981 he was in London organising an exhibition. As he recalled, "I said to myself, if I am a political cartoonist this is my time": "I only had a one-week tourist visa to begin with, but after Martial Law I published a lot of drawings in English, American and French newspapers, and immediately it was impossible to return." Kultura was closed down under Martial Law, but Krause drew cartoons for the Polish trade union paper Solidarnosc. In 1982 he was awarded First Prize in the Forte Dei Marmi (Italy) political satire competition

In 1985 Krauze began supplying political cartoons and illustrations to the Finnish daily Aamulehti, and from 1986 to 1990 he designed posters for London's Old Vic Theatre under the directorship of Jonathan Miller. In 1988 he began contributing cartoons and illustrations to the New Statesman, adding the Guardian and Independent on Sunday in 1989. He simplified his style, and dropped the captions to his cartoons - a change hastened by the realisation that his English wasn't good enough for the British market. The result was very striking. Francis Wheen recalled that when he became the Independent on Sunday's diarist in 1990, he was amazed to find that in his accompanying illustrations Krauze "treated my diary stories as if they were fables by Aesop or La Fontaine, seeking out the essential moral or the universal theme and thus giving them a resonance and depth they scarcely deserved."

Krauze has also contributed to The Times, New York Times, International Herald-Tribune, Sunday Telegraph, Bookseller, Listener, New Scientist, Campaign, Modern Painters and others. In 1985 he was appointed Visiting Lecturer at the Royal College of Art, and in 1997 External Examiner in the Department of Illustration. In 1996 he won the Victoria and Albert Museum Award for Illustration.

Henry Sandham (1842-1910) was born in Montreal in 1842. His father was a house painter by trade in the Griffintown neighbourhood of Montreal. Henry began to show great interest in art at an early age. By 1856, he had begun working in William Notman’s photography studio and by 1860; he was the assistant to William Notman’s partner, John Arthur Fraser, head of the studio art department. As there was no art school in Montreal at that time, Sandham acquired his training in drawing, watercolours and oil painting while on the job. He later developed his skill in human figure drawing by studying anatomy with a physician.

When Fraser left in 1868 to open the Toronto branch of Notman & Fraser, Sandham took his place as head of the art department. During the 1870s, he refined the technique of producing large composite photographs that the Notman studio are widely known for. Sandham was awarded a silver medal at the 1878 Exposition Universelle in Paris for a large scale, three-hundred-person group photo of the McGill Snow Shoe Club. He became partners with Notman in 1877 and the studio was renamed Notman & Sandham. This partnership lasted until 1882.

Sandham began creating illustrations for Scribner’s Monthly in 1877. The illustrations and series-drawings that he created over this three-year period eventually led to be named a charter member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. He died in London, UK in 1910. **
