1887 – A Happy Mother


“A Happy Mother”, is a beautiful full page, book plate image, taken from the ‘cover’ of the October 1888 edition, of “The Prize”. It is one of 13 chromoliths, that have been brought together in one hardbound book, comprised of all the issues from that year, to form a single Annual. A favourite subject of Harrison Weir’s, he always manages to imbue his coloured poultry images with an intangible but equally recognisable quality, that only a combination of empathy, knowledge  and artistic ability could possibly create. A vibrant and colourful study, this print is available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options. (The original printed image, being less than A5 in size!)
