Product Description

An iconic and scarce signed silk screen lithograph print by the World famous Plymouth artist Beryl Cook (1926 - 2008).

The picture is titled ‘Shall We Dance’ and depicts a typical Plymouth Music Hall, with a couple in the foreground dancing and the musicians in the background. A seated lady is swigging beer out of a bottle on the edge of the stage. Beryl Cook's is nearly always a 'tongue in cheek' critique of Plymouth life, but with an element of warmth and humour. Her characters are always portrayed on the voluptuous side. Regarding this picture, Beryl Cook wrote: ‘We are usually in the pub early for jazz on Friday nights so we can get good seats, and then I watch the musicians get their instruments ready for playing. Sometimes the customers use the stage as a handy place to sit before the band arrives, and I was much taken by the woman sitting cross-legged with a bottle to her lips. She had nice shoes too. As did the girl in the close embrace, with attractive stockings to match. I had seen them on different nights, but thought they would make a good group together’.

The print run was limited to 650 examples, and this numbered 16, which being a low number is more desirable. The condition of the unmounted print is good. It was produced and published for the Alexander Gallery Publications Ltd, of Bristol, England. The example is numbered, titled and signed in pencil by Beryl Cook. Comes with an Alexander Gallery certificate of authenticity.
