after Peter Brook (1927 – 2009)
Wytham – Oxford Almanack 1975
70 x 48 cm
A lithograph of Wytham, a characterful and historic village north-west of Oxford. The original painting hangs in the Ashmolean Museum.
Brook’s painting was reproduced as a lithograph in 1975 to be published in the “Oxford Almanack”. The Oxford Almanack was an annual almanack published by the Oxford University Press for the University of Oxford from 1674 through 2019 (when printing sadly ceased due to “dwindling interest”). The almanack traditionally included engravings or lithographs of the University and information about the upcoming year. Other almanack artists have included James Basire, Michael Burghers, J. M. W. Turner, and Michael Oelman.
Peter Brook RBA was an English artist best known for his landscape paintings; he was nicknamed “The Pennine Landscape Painter”. He was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1962.
Condition: very good.
