Description
Mini print of Michael Andrews’ Melanie and Me Swimming , 1978-9.

This painting depicts the artist and his then six year old daughter swimming in a natural pool in Perthshire, and is one of a series of ‘Holiday’ paintings undertaken by Andrews. Andrews used a photograph as his reference, but painted the rocks above from memory, using strips of paint saturated cloth pressed on to the canvas to create texture. Neither figure shows their full face, yet it is nonetheless an intimate and emotive portrait.

Michael Andrews (1928 – 1995) was a British painter. Born in Norwich, Andrews studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and was taught by William Coldstream, Lucian Freud, William Townsend and Lawrence Gowing, later teaching there himself. As a member of the Norwich Twenty Group of artists the county remained important to him and in 1981 he returned to Norfolk to live in Saxlingham Nethergate, the village he commemorated in Sax AD 832 1982.

All our mini prints measure 28 x 36.5 cm and include a white border with full artwork credit line.

Our mini prints are produced on 250 gsm matt art paper using a four colour flat-bed digital printer. We work with only UK based PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified suppliers for our print products.
