Clive Madgwick art prints and posters

Clive Madgwick is established as one of Britain's most popular and commercially successful artists. His clear, detailed style, coupled with an ability to distil the essence of the English landscape, provided him with a strong market for his original paintings and prints.

Something which set Clive Madgwick apart from many landscape artists was his desire to represent the landscape in reality, rather than as it was. Consequently, whilst many painters depicted long-since passed scenes of horse-drawn carts at harvest time, Clive Madgwick preferred to turn his back on sentimentality and paint a tractor ploughing a field.

Born and bred in the Esher area of Surrey, Clive Madgwick's whole family was medical and, after attending Downs End School and Epsom College, he went on to study dental medicine at Guy's Hospital. The surprise to the family came when he turned from dentistry and became an artist. Wholly self-taught, he turned to painting full-time during his early middle age and consequently pursued a highly successful new career.

Major commissions were numerous and included work for the Abbey National Building Society, Calor Gas, and Boots the Chemists. His sensitive paintings were published as fine art prints with such success that Clive Madgwick became one of the best-selling artists in the world. His pictures are held in many significant collections. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II owns a 1989 painting Buckingham Palace from St James's Park, which hangs in Windsor Castle and which thankfully survived the fire.

Clive Madgwick lived in East Anglia, drawing inspiration from the local countryside to create his paintings and travelling extensively the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. He died in 2005.

More about framing

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
