Cyril Power post World War I

During World War I Power served in the Royal Flying Corps. It was after the war when he left his family and began his art career. He started with landscapes in watercolour in the 1920s.

In 1925, Power began study at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art in London, and he assisted in the setup of The Grosvenor School of Modern Art. There he served as a principal lecturer on architecture. The school was a private, informal study environment which stayed open until 1940. It was instrumental in the revival of printmaking arts.

Cyril Power also studied linocutting and began producing prints with Sybil Andrews, using the collaborative name Andrew Power. Andrew & Power began exhibiting their work in 1929, both in London and internationally. Today Andrew Power drypoint prints from this period can bring prices upward of five figures, particularly if they are signed and numbered by the artists.

With their success, Andrew Power were commissioned to produce posters for the Underground Electric Railways Company of London. These posters featured sport venues that could be visited via the London Underground system. The prints were a major influence for future poster artists.

In the mid 1930’s Cyril Power continued exhibiting with Sybil Andrews, but they ended their partnership in 1938. As World War II began, Power served as a surveyor but kept making art, mostly oil paintings. He continued completing oil paintings of landscapes up until his death in 1951. His linocut prints are highly collectible today.

Mark Littler Ltd. are one of the only independent advisers in the antique industry. We offer trusted, independent advice to help you sell your Cyril Power print for the highest possible price.

If you have a print of Cyril Power you may be considering selling at auction.

You can then be assured your print will sell for the highest possible price.

If we think it will be more beneficial to you, we can also negotiate private sales, which can save you considerably in commission. Private sales can also be completed swiftly and you will get paid more quickly than if you sell via an auction.
