Latest from the RWA shop:
For #PrintMonth as created by Royal Academy of Arts we have a special limited edition run of signed giclée prints by Mary Fedden. Each week a new one will be available at a 30% special discounted rate. The RWA is fortunate enough to have an impressive collection of Fedden’s work and has collaborated with private collectors and Sky Blue Framing, Bristol, to create a highly collectable limited edition of prints.
The works selected for print span just a fragment of Mary’s impressive career in which she has been the first, and only,
woman President of the RWA, elected a Royal Academy Academician, 1992, and awarded an OBE.
Featuring some of Mary’s favourite motifs, the giclée prints are created using a digital process and are reproduced using guaranteed light-fast pigmented inks onto cotton fibre papers.
This weeks print is the beautiful Eyot Gardens framed and signed and priced at £452. The sale of these prints will go towards supporting vital work at the RWA. Enquiries can be made by contacting the Academy on 0117 973 5129 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
