Man Slain by a Tiger. Screenprint, signed and numbered by the artist. Edition: 35, print size: 56 x 56 cm, paper size: 56 x 56 cm.
‘Man Slain by a Tiger’ is the first print by the artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins to be made in collaboration with the Penfold Press. This five colour screen print marks the beginning of an ongoing collaboration that will continue later this year with the first print in a series based upon the medieval poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.'
"Man Slain by a Tiger is based on a rather jaunty Staffordshire pottery group titled The Death of Munrow, which itself borrowed from the automaton in the V & A known as Tipu's Tiger. The gruesome event portrayed by the automaton and in the pottery group is based on fact, though rather fancifully reinvented."
