2001 Beryl Cook Signed Framed Lithograph Jiving to Jazz



Product Description

A beautifully mounted limited edition numbered lithograph print of ‘Jiving to Jazz’ by Beryl Cook.

Of this work, she commented: ““It was a wonderful evening at The Tobacco Factory in Bristol. A whole night of jazz performed by Rod Mason’s marvellous band. The sousaphone player, standing there with his instrument wrapped around him like a suit of armour fascinated me. He also played the trumpet very well and sang beautifully. The audience responded enthusiastically to every song and danced the night away. I of course just sat and watched (and sketched and made little notes about everyone’s clothes). I particularly liked the shoes worn by the lady in the green top.”

The print is signed in pencil by the artist and is numbered 239/650. It was published in 2001, by the Alexander Gallery Publications, in Bristol. Condition is mint. The print has been mounted on a cream card, with inner border in gold.

Beryl Cook (1926 - 2008) is probably Plymouth's most famous artist of the 20th Century and is best known for her tongue in cheek representations of Plymouth social life. Her distinctive style, with large portly ladies and men, is hugely popular, making this a desirable piece for any enthusiast.
