Philip Reeves was an English artist, collage-maker and printmaker who lived for much of his life in Scotland.
Reeves studied at the Cheltenham School of Art (1947 - 1949) and at the Royal College of Art, London (1951-1954). Reeves became a lecturer at Glasgow School of Art in 1954 and was Head of Printmaking from 1970 to 1991. He founded the Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop in 1961 and was a founder member of Glasgow Print Studio in 1972.
Reeves was instrumental in developing the printmaking department at Glasgow School of Art. As printmaking took on a more central role within contemporary art during the 1960s and 1970s, Reeves developed his own work and experimented with print techniques as well as moving into collage. Inspiration for his work came from rural or coastal areas - the West Highland Way or cliffs in the North of Scotland, as much as urban scenes and cityscapes.

This is a rare and unique piece by Reeves - it is a colleage and mixed media piece. These works are commanding much higher prices in local Edinburgh auctions etc. So a fair price by this much sought after Scottish artist.
