1995 Beryl Cook Musicians Signed Limited Edition Print 287


A signed, limited edition offset lithograph Beryl Cook print titled ‘Musicians’, published in 1995 and numbered 287/650.

The print bears Beryl Cook’s hand signed pencil signature and the details of ‘Alexander Gallery Publications Ltd., Bristol, England’ – sole publishers of Cook’s work since 1977. The painting shows a trio of musicians, of whom Beryl Cook wrote: “The other side of the Plymouth Arts Centre signboard shows a serious trio enjoying some chamber music. I felt I really must get the instruments right in this case and borrowed a book from the library to assist me. It did take me some considerable time writing the music for them and I hope it is in keeping with the exquisite pleasure they are feeling."

Beryl Cook (1926-2008) was a Plymouth artist famed for her representations of plump extroverted women. Her distinctive, comic style enjoys popularity across the world.

The print is in pristine condition and comes from the last remaining stock of the Alexander Gallery. The print has been mounted on card and wrapped in clear plastic to protect it.
