From the exhibition: Edition - A Century of British Prints 1906-2006, May 12-June 3, 2006. Check out the additional prints in the show.
Lynn Chadwick was a sculptor, but I simply adore this simple print. Similar to the imagery you'll find in his sculptures, I prefer the softness of the print. Granted, the comparison is a bit weak but I've always found it fascinating how sculptures are translated (or originate in drawings), drawings so interesting they are turned into prints. Check out Henry Moore.
