1997 Beryl Cook Twins Signed Limited Edition Silkscreen AP Print


A rare, signed and framed limited edition Beryl Cook silkscreen print titled ‘Twins’, published in 1997 and is numbered 51/60, which was a small Artist’s Proof run of a small issue of 300 and making this print rare. The print bears Beryl Cook’s hand signed pencil signature and the title ‘Twins’ and was produced by Flanagan Graphics in the USA. It shows a humorous scene depicting a passenger waiting area in Los Angeles train station, with a pair of seated female twins dressed in matching outfits gawking at a very busty, fashionably dressed woman passing by. The facial expressions expressed by the fellow passengers add to the viewer's amusement in this unmistakable double entendre. It is part of the paintings that Beryl Cook did whilst visiting America.
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 portley ladies and men, is hugely popular, making this a desirable piece for any enthusiast.
The print is nicely framed and glazed and very good condition.
