This miniature unframed collagraph print is based on artefacts held in the Yorkshire Museum in York, England. It depicts the White Boar which was the emblem of the last Plantagenet King of England, Richard III (d 1485) . The boar is superimposed on the background of the Middleham Jewel, a beautiful sapphire mounted in a gold pendant, which was found near Middleham Castle in Yorkshire, where Richard lived and his son was born.
The hand cut plate from which this print is made contains only minimal outlines and details - the rest of image is created by the way the blue ink is wiped and removed before passing the plate through an etching press with a piece of dampened printmaking paper. This means that each print is a unique artwork and no two prints will be identical. Yours may differ slightly from the images shown here. Twenty prints have been made from this plate.
Each print is numbered, titled, signed and dated in pencil under the image. Please note the print is supplied unframed for safe shipping.
