‘East of Eden’ is a Giclée Print by acclaimed British artist Simon Palmer. Printed onto 310gsm Cotton Rag Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 850 and is hand numbered and embossed.
Simon Palmer is an acclaimed, contemporary artist, whose work details scenes of the British landscape. Bearing the traces of Eric Ravillious and Paul Nash, Palmer’s work revels in palettes of soft, woody greens and earthy browns, favouring a non-linear perspective which perfectly captures the undulations of the Yorkshire Dales or the labyrinthine layout of a meandering forest.
‘East of Eden’ depicts a snapshot of the Yorkshire countryside: beneath a clouded, blue sky, oak trees are in full, green ripeness; flint walls and wooden fences border the narrow lane that cuts through the print’s centre; rolling hills stagger the background; a little cottage can just be seen on the horizon; while a travellers resting stump dominates the foreground, a place to pause and soak up the beauty of Palmer’s leafy home county.
