Description

Emily Martin (The Black Apple) does amazing paintings, and we're excited to have a few of them in our shop as prints.

She says about this portrait,

I love the famous (and excellently macabre) nursery rhyme Who Killed Cock Robin. There are a lot of variations and expansions on it, too, and many illustrated little books of the story from the 19th and early 20th century from dozens of different illustrators.

I'd really like to do an expanded Cock Robin series some day, but for now, this is my imagining of the last lines (my favorite part):

All the birds of the air
Fell sighing and sobbing,
When they heard the bell toll
For poor Cock Robin.

The print is archival, water-resistant, fade-resistant, and has a beautiful richness.

All prints arrive sealed in a cello sleeve and a protective stiff envelope, signed by Emily Martin.

Measures: 10" x 8"
