Jaques, Norman.C: Spring, Cheshire – SOLD


Typical of his work characterising the Cheshire countryside, and capturing both light and shadow, a confident lithograph from the 1960s, signed and inscribed, unframed from the artist’ studio. Slight foxing to the margins which could be concealed behind a mount, the image unaffected.

More images can be provided on request.
