  • About the artist
    Alistair Grant was a printmaker, painter and illustrator. He was born in Kensington, London. His mother was from Etaples in Northern France: Grant retained the family home here and the region inspired his work throughout his life. From 1941-43 he studied at Birmingham College of Art, before being conscripted into the Royal Air Force. He subsequently studied at the Royal College of Art, where he was appointed Head of Printmaking in 1970 and Professor in 1984. Grant was involved in the production of several UK films, including The Portrait of Dorian Gray and The Battle of Agincourt. After retiring from the Royal College, Grant focused on his work, exhibiting both in England and France and spending his time between London, Etaples and Paris.
