The Red Lion

My latest limited edition screen print, the Red Lion, is part of a series of prints, entitled Coloured Inns - an examination of popular Pub Names, each described by a colour (Blue Boar, Green Dragon, White Hart, Golden Eagle, Dun Cow, etc, etc).

The Red Lion, Britain's most popular pub name, is usually attributed to honouring John of Gaunt, Grandfather of Henry V and great-great-grandfather of Henry VII, but this is unlikely. It more probably refers to the Red Lion of Scotland, as seen in the upper right-hand corner of the Royal Coat-of-Arms and included since the accession of James I, the first Stuart king of England.

This print measures 42 cm across by 30 cm high ( A3 - a standard frame-size) and is a strictly limited edition of 25, signed by the Artist. Printed on 300 gsm paper this 2-colour print can be yours (or a loved one's!) for £75 + P&P and will be available very shortly for purchase at my Etsy shop and from other reputable outlets.

This print is delivered flat in a reinforced card-backed envelope.
