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 ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ and depicts 2 ladies quite finely turned out, eating Fish & Chips in paper wrapper, and swigging from a bottle in some rather spartan pub. The women are wearing dresses, finished off by some rather imposing hats. The artist was always trying to capture the incongruous and humorous aspects of life. 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.

Of this composition, she wrote: ‘Two women in their finery enjoying their lunch; but they are not the ‘ladies who lunch’ in smart cosmopolitan restaurants so beloved of the gossip columns. My ladies may be dressed to the nines, but they have brought their own lunch to the pub and they are drinking Guinness straight from the bottle! And they are smoking as well – I expect the PC brigade have me marked down as a subversive influence don’t you’.

The print run was published in 2005 and limited to 650 examples, and this numbered 127, which being a low number is more desirable. The condition of the mounted print is good. It was produced and published for the Alexander Gallery Publications Ltd, of Bristol, England. The example is mounted, numbered, titled and signed in pencil by Beryl Cook. Comes with an Alexander Gallery certificate of authenticity.
