We present a small curated selection of etchings produced by Villa Lena Foundation in the past few years.
Four emerging British artists, past residents at Villa Lena, present visual studies on the classical subject of Figure and Landscape.

Beatrice Boyle is a figurative painter, and for this etching she concentrated on the female figure. The figure is reduced to a series of lines, the colour recalls flesh, is also reduced to a flat monochrome. Through a series of abstractions, the figure becomes removed from the original life drawings, paintings and sculptures it derived from – it becomes a symbol, a representation of its simplest form.

Beatrice Boyle (b. 1985, London, UK) studied Fine Art and Painting at Camberwell College of Art and Central St. Martins.


Il Bisonte is a print-workshop for graphic arts founded in Florence in 1959 by Maria Luigia Guaita.
Many artists – both Italian and non – accepted the invitation to work at Il Bisonte. including members of the Futurist movement -
Gino Severini, Carlo Carrà, Alberto Magnelli, and such international stars as Pablo Picasso, Jacques Lipchitz, Helen Chadwick, Alexander Calder and Henry Moore.
