Work Detail

An edition of 200 with 20 artist's proofs. Printed, signed and numbered by the artist in 6 colours in 1989 at Lowick House Print Workshop, Cumbria, UK on John Purcell 285gsm mould-made 100% rag paper. 

In 1988, thanks to a Travel Award from Northern Arts (now Arts Council North),  I went  on a month-long visit to northern and central Italy, searching out as many paintings as I could find by two 15th century artists, Giovanni Bellini and Piero della Francesca.   One of the wonderful things about Piero della Francesca is his great sense of colour -  his colourful greys, and it was these colourful greys which I wanted to get into my lithograph, Take Stock.
