Most wished for… gifts over £250

This holiday season, we’re taking a closer look at the popular prints that have made their way into our customers’ wish lists. From art deco poster designs by A.M. Cassandre, to intricate florals by Manchester-based artist Stephen Doherty, there’s a reason why these popular artworks are admired by art lovers and collectors around the world.

Dubonnet, 1932, A.M. Cassandre

Designed in 1932 for the Parisian sweet Vermouth company, Dubonnet, this poster is one of A.M. Cassandre’s (1901–1968) most famous designs. The last in a series of three posters which gradually spell out ‘Dubo’, ‘Dubo’, ‘Dubonnet’, each poster depicts a geometric figure surrounded by a warm yellow glow which increases in intensity as he heartily quafs the legendary aperitif. 

Dubonnet was a favourite of the late Queen’s Mother, and Queen Elizabeth II. Enjoyed as a cocktail – made up of two parts Dubonnet, one part gin, served with ice and lemon – Queen Elizabeth II is said to have regularly enjoyed the cocktail before lunch.

Printed on Monte Carlo 300gsm watercolour paper and embossed with an authorised Estate of A.M. Cassandre stamp, this is an extra special print.

As Above So Below, 2020, Sir Frank Bowling

Hailed as one of the finest British artists of his generation, Sir Frank Bowling’s 60 year multidisciplinary and transatlantic career informs his ongoing investigation into the possibilities of painting.  

Exhibited in the ‘Frank Bowling: Land of Many Waters’ show at Arnolfini, Bristol in 2021, the ‘found geometry’ in ‘As Above So Below’ divides the canvas with pools of dark green and magenta above and Payne’s grey and yellow below. This Special Edition print comes with a certificate of authenticity. 

1970, Bella Freud

From our brand new collaboration with Bella Freud, we proudly present her iconic 1970 design as a limited edition silkscreen print. Each print is lovingly hand signed and numbered by Bella. Just 50 prints are available.

Inspired by the early punk scene of New York, and the ‘punk poet laureate’ Patti Smith, this striking design epitomises the fashion designer’s style ethos – ‘that kind of punk rocker who appreciates classy things’.

Red Anemone, Stephen Doherty

Inspiration for Manchester-based artist Stephen Doherty’s floral collection came whilst he was an artist in residence at Aamir Art House during Goa’s monsoon season. When new flowers came into bloom after heavy rainfall, they offered a sense of cleansing and renewal.  

Built up through delicate washes of ink and water, Doherty’s intricately detailed ‘Red Anemone’ is the most recent addition to the collection. Each giclée print is hand signed by the artist. A limited edition, there are just 75 available.  

Roast Turkey Shopping Bag (Roy Lichtenstein) 

Manhattan native Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) created his first cartoon-strip style paintings in the 1950s. By the 1960s, he had established himself as a Pop Art pioneer, alongside Andy Warhol. His bold and graphic style served as tongue-in-cheek social commentary on the changing nature of contemporary American society.  

We produced this now very rare silkscreen featuring Lichtenstein’s ‘Roast Turkey Shopping Bag’ in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Shopping: A Century of Art and Consumer Culture’ at Tate Liverpool, 20th December 2002- 23rd March 2003. It is available on a first come, first serve basis. Learn more.
