Yesterday I went to the London Original Print Fair, located in Burlington House (same place as David Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Picture’ exhibition. Sadly his work has moved on!). All of the work was for sale at the fair, with a price range of £100-£100 000. The entry fee was £12, or £8 for students, but luckily I had a free pass. This fair was only open for 4 days. Interestingly, all of my favourite prints were of animals!
Above, a print by Robin Duttson, entitled ‘The Apple Tree’. This was a very large piece, perhaps 1.5m by 1.5m. I thought it was a lovely representation of spring.
Above, a print by Orovida Pissaro, 1938, entitled ‘Zebra with Foal’. I think this was my favourite, although it was £400!
Above, ‘Porcus Dei’ by Hugo Wilson. I thought this was a very tender piece of a piglet, and very detailed too (however this isn’t conveyed in the image above, since it is very small compared to the original, which was perhaps 1m by 1m).
Above, a collage of a bulldog by Peter Clark.
