This original linocut print features a humorous scene, loosely based on the seduction scene in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Drawing a little from the work of Edward Bawden, the composition shows how, despite all his armour, this bold knight has no strength to resist the lady's approaches! A friend of mine called this print "Carry on Jousting" as it reminded him of the Carry On films and their inherent bawdiness!
