Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1998
12.7 x 22.6cm, 2pp artist postcard with an abstract painting by Gary Hincks of a Coble - a flat-bottomed fishing boat. The name Coble sounds very much like cobble and both share a characteristic of being roughly made and placed next to each other to form a shape (this is how a Coble hull is made - lengths of wood overlapping - which is shown in the painting with the red and blue stripes". VG+.

Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1991
43 x 41cm, four colour offset lithograph with a reproduction of the painting "The Poor Fisherman" by Puvis De Chavannes - however the mast of the boat has had a revolutionary cockade been added to it. - hence adding a political edge to the image more than the original solely religious intent.
This was a limited edition print issued at the same time as the exhibition at the Talbot Rice Gallery that examined the work in some detail and responses to the work.
There was also an exhibition poster for the show based on the same image and the cover of the exhibition catalogue and invitation to the vernissage.
Fine condition. Limitation unknown but usually 300 - 350 for Finlay prints.
