Best known for his swirling ‘Woolmark’ logo, Franco Grignani (1908-1999) was an influential artist and graphic designer whose dazzling works anticipated Op Art. This new exhibition, Franco Grignani: Art as Design 1950-1990 at the Estorick Collection, features around 130 paintings and works on paper, including his graphic design projects, many of which are on loan from private collections and from the Manuela Grignani Sirtoli Archive.
 
Grignani studied both mathematics and architecture between the late 1920s and the early 1930s, before opening a studio in Milan that specialized in exhibition design and graphics. Over the years he produced advertising campaigns for a variety of high-profile companies, including Pirelli and Alfieri & Lacroix, and designed covers for a number of science fiction novels published by Penguin Books in the late 1960s.
 
Franco Grignani: Art as Design 1950-1990 will be running from 5 July 2017 - 10 September 2017 at the Estorick Collection.

Please see the website for full details.
