This is a fine original hand-coloured lithograph, dating to 1987.
It was made by the Scottish artist, Pat Douthwaite (1939 - 2002).
This is one of my favourite lithographs by her - and it is titled Apple Kabuki - as can be seen in the lozenge behind the figure. It is also boldly and quite prominently signed at the top of the sheet - as part of the image.
The lithograph shows a strange figure dressed in a large pointed hat - a strange little bird-like creature runs down her arm.
The image has been printed in black ink - and has had touches of watercolour added by the artist to enliven selected parts of the image, such as the girl's hat, the title lozenge, and part of her signature.
It is from a small edition, and probably not much more than 20 impressions were ever taken.
It is being sold unframed.
The print has been printed on heavy Arches paper - and this measures about 77 x 57 cm.

I had been keeping my eye out for some art work by Pat Douthwaite for some time now usually at the local auction houses, whilst it’s a hit and miss with selling prices and as usual the one that you want goes for a higher price. So thankfully I came across the online gallery Iconic Edinburgh and found one that I liked, the price was fair in comparison to hammer prices at auction without all the hassle of time and fees. The best bit was the fantastic service and information from the gallery owner Valerie she has a wealth of knowledge and expertise which I found very helpful. The print was delivered within three days well packaged and in very good condition.
