Diogenes

£60.00 / On Sale



A celebration of ancient greek philosopher Diogenes, controversial father of cynicism, who famously lived in a barrel or tub, where on one occasion he entertained Alexander the Great. He is also said to walk around the city in broad daylight, lantern held aloft, in a vain search for an honest man! The chicken relates to an argument he had with Plato.

This three-colour mini print measures 20 x 20 cm (printed area approx. 16 cm square) and is printed on 300 gsm Somerset paper in a limited edition of 50. Signed and numbered by the artist.
