LIST 514

MAY 2021


Issued Wednesday 5th May to celebrate


We had intended to hold an exhibition of Francis Wishart’s monotypes in April 2020. For obvious reasons, this could not happen. We hope to hang an Exhibition later this year, or early next. But, in the meantime, this group of nine prints is intended as as introduction to his work.
