towner gallery, The Lyons Teashops Lithographs, art in a time of austerity,

The Towner Art Museum houses renowned collections of art from across the ages, and its upcoming exhibition The Lyons Teashops Lithographs, they will explore the prints of artists who were working in the last 'austerity Britain'.

The exhibit, which starts 13th July and continues until 22nd September will look at popular artists from post-World War Two; these include Edward Bawden John Nash, and John Piper, who served as official war artists, the conscientious objector, John Minton, William Scott, and David Gentleman.

After the war, these artists were commissioned by the catering company J. Lyons & Co, who are best well known for their brand of Lyons Tea. They ordered three series of lithographs to decorate their famous tearoom, which was looking somewhat bare due to the lack of material during wartime.

The lithographs are soon going to be on display at the Towner, where you can see them for 5.50 (4 concession and free for under 16s), while enjoying a piece of cake at the museum's very own tearoom.

On the 20th July, there will also be a 1940s/50s club night at Corner House.
