Shield of Achilles

Joe Tilson RA (b1928)

A very large and stunning screenprint with woodblock from 1990 by Joe Tilson RA, Shield of Achilles.

The work is signed and dated in pencil with a further personal dedication in pencil ‘To Dave, Many thanks for all the hard work’.  Dave was a printer at Advanced Graphics where this work was printed, we acquired this work at auction along with other works that were in the printer’s personal collection.  The edition size for this print was just 45 copies.

A superb work, heavily inked, featuring silver ink, and with a great surface.

Measurements: 1220 x 925mm sheet size

Condition: Unframed, on heavy paper, overall in very good condition, there has been a small professional edge repair to the upper right as shown in photograph. Note that with the heavily inked surface there are 'natural' colourless lines in the dark blue ink from its sheer weight on the paper.
