The Itinerant Storyteller

£60.00


A fun image by Nicholas Ward, this is a signed limited edition print. Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist.

The story behind the piece :

"I travel here, I travel there, but who will listen to my stories? Although this is in no way a self portrait, this picture is definitely inspired by my profession and how it has sometimes made me feel – trawling publishers, trying to sell my ideas. It can be rather lonely and dispiriting – then an editor will pounce on an idea, and everything seems worthwhile again! Here, the storyteller and his friends travel past a landscape reminiscent of the Wittenham Clumps, which were a huge inspiration to Paul Nash, one of my favourite artists."

The image is approximately 42 x 29.7cm.

Supplied unframed (cellophane wrapped & backed), but can be framed if required - just contact the gallery for a quote.They are simple, graphic, lighthearted images, mainly in two colours, and have been produced as art prints on good quality paper. The original images were produced traditionally with pen and ink and then coloured digitally.
