About

TAXI is a hand drawn, pencil signed limited edition lithograph by the well known and loved British artist and humorist, Beryl Cook(1926-2008). Printed using hand lithography techniques on archival Arches paper, 100% acid free. TAXI presents a satirical city street scene depicting a male businessman dressed in a beige pin stripe suit assisting a vivacious, curvy, curly haired blonde "lady in red" into an iconic London "Black" cab in front of an intriguing backdrop of building construction complete with rubble and beams, while a nonchalant construction worker stands whistling by his steam shovel in the background as the spectacle unfolds. Seeing the details of facial expressions expressed by the fellow passengers and cab driver add to the viewer's amusement in this quintessential Beryl Cook image. Print size - 34 x 27 inches, unframed Image size - 25" x 19" Edition size - 300 Year published - 1990, printed at JK Fine Art Editions Co. NYC Beryl Cook's unique artistic humor documented familiar social situations like girls night out, clubbing or shopping, men in the pub, at a strip club or at the market capturing "moments of social history, portrayed with a playful streak of naughtiness". She is quoted as saying: "I'm only motivated to paint by people enjoying themselves."
