A Bird's Eye View of Hertford College, Oxford. It would look good in any home and make a lovely graduation gift or Oxford art gift. It would be particularly suited to a modern or minimalist decor scheme, or could add a touch of monotone detail to contrast a more colourful setting.
This is "Hertford Bridge", connecting the two halves of the college. It is often known as Oxford's Bridge of Sighs. This was a sketched plan for a painting rather than a finished piece but popular as a print.
It is an unusual addition to my print collection as it is monotone. However the high contrast and unusual angle adds a bit of drama in place of colour. I love a perspective challenge in drawing a building from an angle I've not seen it, it makes me really think about the angles and details.
Some day I may do the painting!
