Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1965
55 x 43cm, black on white silkscreen with 54 x 42cm white on plastic overlay. An abstract pattern which when the overlay is moved creates a kinetic work in the emerging style of Op-Art. This is one of the rarest of Wild Hawthorn Press works to find - sometimes it was sold without the overlay with Finlay's blessing.
