Bawden, Edward – Hare and Tortoise

Colour linocut, 1970. In the 1970’s Bawden made a series of prints based on Aesop’s fables. The tortoise and the hare each claim an ability to run fastest. They agree upon a race, but mid-way through, convinced of his skills, the hare decides to rest – to sleep by the roadside. The tortoise, aware of his own pace, decides to run all the way without stopping; he overtakes the hare, and so wins the race. The moral? Hard work is often better than skills taken for granted.

Format: Giclée Print, Limited Edition (1/850) on 310gsm thick 100% cotton rag. Hand-numbered and hand-embossed.

Size: Image 30 x 42cm; paper: 42 x 51cm

Postage: All UK postage, whether for framed or unframed prints, is free of charge.
