Description

This Dutch proverb ("Logés en verse vis blijven drie dagen fris") litteraly means 'Guests and fish stay fresh for three days'. My grandmother used to say this and apparently Queen Wilhelmina had this proverb on her living room wall as well. The perfect humorous wall art for the guest room!

This image was printed from a woodcut with a 'rainbow roll' of blue and aqua (see last photo). For different colour variations, see photo 4 and please indicate your preference in your "message to seller" when ordering

All my woodcuts are printed by hand from a hand-carved piece of birch plywood with non-toxic, oil-based ink on off-white printmaking paper.

This is not a computer generated image, but a unique handmade piece of art, so please allow for slight variations from the image shown. The print you receive will be signed and numbered in pencil from a limited edition of only 35 prints. It is sold without mat or frame.

Paper: 100% cotton rag paper
Ink: professional non-toxic oil-based ink
Image size: 6x13 inch / 15x34 cm
Paper size: 9x18 inch / 21x46 cm

The print will be packaged in a cellophane sleeve in a sturdy envelope with backing and shipped flat, so it arrives with you in perfect condition.
