    Default MRA Auction XI Lot 39: An artistís proof of a Monnow Raspberry

    LOT 39

    Monnow Raspberry
    by Simon Clarke Ė an A4 Watercolour Print (Artist's Proof) on high quality German Etching paper.

    ďA celebration of a magnificent wild fish (a PB) I caught on the River Monnow during the 2017 Social. My first watercolour or indeed painting of any description. The aim for me was to capture the beautiful colouring of this special fish.Ē

    This is Simonís first attempt at painting and, with no tuition or training, he has produced a great image of a great fish.

    Donated by Simon Clarke

    Trout fishermen revere the trout; trout, on the other hand, unaware of their sublime standing in man's world, revere nothing, including man, a creature they seem to view with special contempt. Nihilism is a rare trait in fish but trout are full of it. The old men liked that.

    Do you have the dimensions of the sheet as an indication of size (other than the hand). Thanks.

    I believe the description specifies A4

    £30.00, seems very low for a quality print but ......
