Scope and content

Eleven prints by Graham Clilverd - all of hospital buildings. Graham Clilverd (1883-1978) was a British architectural painter, engraver and etcher. Having studied in London at the Central Arts School, he first exhibited his art around 1906 and by 1910 his paintings were annually shown at such major institutions as the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy and at the Paris Salon. During the First World War, Graham Clilverd also served as a camouflage artist (1916-1918) and he is believed to have acted as a war artist in the Second World War. Clilverd's main passion was architectural art, and his output eventually earned him a Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts. His extensive series of hospital prints dates from approximately 1950s.
