PENGUIN PRINTS




THIS PAGE 'PR' PR1 - PR11






Penguin produced a series of reproductions of old masters and newer works. The prints were mounted in folders with a size of 13¼" x 17". Each folder also contained information on the artist and the painting/work of art. The choice of paintings/works of art was made by Kenneth Clark.

Only 11 were produced. The first PR1 appeared in December 1948, Yacht Approaching Coast by JMW Turner. The last, PR11, was published in April 1952.
