This linocut features an imagined scene in the Middle Ages with three troubadours arriving at a castle window only to be greeted by a grumpy hound rather than the Lady. The image itself features three singers taken from a variety of mediaeval manuscripts; the "voices" emerging from the singers' mouths mimics a technique I saw on a Devon bench-end where the mediaeval carpenters used these clouds to suggest voice.


A black and white version of this print is also available.


Only one available, hand printed on a Victorian Albion Press in Cambridgeshire, UK. Signed and editioned by the artist and printed on 250 gsm Somerset Velvet Paper. The printed part of the image measures approximately 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15cm).
