The Tempest/ Much Ado About Nothing

My latest limited edition screen print, 'The Tempest/ Much Ado About Nothing', was designed and printed to celebrate the 400th anniversary this month of the death of William Shakespeare, 'the Swan of Avon', and arguably the english language's finest writer. Here a poster for a fictitious Shakespeare Double-Bill (geddit?) - The Tempest (the storm) and Much Ado About Nothing, a storm in a tea-cup!

I have set my scene in the Fortune Theatre or Playhouse, a contemporary of the famous Globe, located outside the City of London near Clerkenwell. The plays are directed by Wilam Horzyca, one time director of the National Theatre in Warsaw and my great-uncle. https://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=pl&u=https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilam_Horzyca&prev=search
'The Tempest/ Much Ado About Nothing' is printed in a strictly limited edition of 50. It is printed in 3 colours on 300 gsm Heritage acid-free cartridge paper and measures 30 cm wide by 42 cm high (A3, a standard frame size!). The print is signed and numbered by the Artist and posted out in a stiff cardboard tube.
