Leonard Beaumont (1891-1986) was a British printmaker from Sheffield. He took evening classes at the Sheffield School of Art while he was working for a newspaper, and started making prints in the 1920's. He made etchings from 1925 to 1931, and experimented with linocuts in the early 1930's. After moving to London with his wife in 1936, he became a successful commercial graphic designer, eventually working with Sainsbury's from 1950 to 1964. Beaumont also exhibited at the Royal Academy and his works were shown at the British Museum and the National Galleries of Australia and Canada, and posthumously in the Sheffield Museums to whom he bequeathed most of his works.
