Most wished for… gifts under £100

This holiday season, we’re taking a closer look at the popular prints that have made their way into our customers’ wish lists. From a characterful line drawing of Picasso’s Dachshund to a Christmas favourite by the late Raymond Briggs, there’s a reason why these popular artworks capture the hearts of our customers.

Le Chien, Pablo Picasso

Wimbledon, 1931, Herry Perry

Published by the Underground Electric Railway Company in 1931, this wonderful poster was put into circulation to encourage Wimbledon tennis fans to take the underground to South Wimbledon station and continue their journey by bus to the famous All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

Poster designer Herry Perry perfectly captures the atmosphere of the renowned championships. Her skilful use of symmetry and perspective capture the atmosphere in this mixed doubles scene. With her pleasing colour palette, Perry’s work still feels fresh and contemporary today.

Reigning Queens: Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, 1985, Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol explored themes of fame and celebrity throughout his life. In the 1960s he gained critical attention and instant popularity with his silkscreen prints of Hollywood sensations including Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. By 1980, he had immortalised a new era of icons such as new wave Blondie frontwoman, Debbie Harry. 

Two years prior to his death, the pioneer of pop art created his ‘Reigning Queens’ collection. Based on an official photograph of the late Queen Elizabeth II, this striking artwork enshrines her majesty in pop art glory. 

Le Chien, Pablo Picasso

Spanish born artist Pablo Picasso worked in a variety of styles. During his expansive career, his work included painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics and even theatre design. Co-founder of the Cubist movement, he was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth-century. 

In 1907 Picasso produced a charming set of animal drawings in his sketchbook that were simplistic, yet highly impactful. Some of the animals were based on the artist's own pets, while others such as the ‘Le Pingouin’ and ‘Le Chameau’ were based on other animals that he had encountered during his life. ‘Le Chien’ was based on Picasso’s own Dachshund named Lump, and is beautifully executed with a single unbroken line.
