Regulars to the blog will be aware of my discovery and love of Peggy Wickhams work. I sourced a small number of original prints which were published by The Medici Society. ‘The Beach’ has now sold out and I only have a few of ‘The Village’. Imagine my excitement when two further designs were discovered hidden in a barn in Norfolk! These prints are a bit of a mystery which I think only adds to their charm. Medici originally thought they dated back to the 50′s and were lithographs, however they recently discovered stock lists for ‘Foals’ dated 1937. What is clear is these prints are stunning and in fantastic condition whatever their age. Available to buy here.

I posted a while back my discovery of the artist Peggy Wickham. I am now stocking reproduction Giclees of her 1950′s illustrations, but best of all I have I a small number of her original lithographs. I have ‘On the Beach’ (posted further down) and ‘The Village’ featured here. Both are £75 each and available to buy here
Peggy Wickham ‘The Village’
I’ve just had these images sent over of the new Peggy Wickham prints which are arriving this week. I’m really looking forward to seeing them. ‘On the Beach’ are original 50′s prints, whilst ‘Ship Ahoy’, ‘The Ship Inn’ and ‘Farm Scene’ will all be reproduction Giclee prints. Original prints are £75 each and the Giclee prints are £20. If like me you are a fan of 50′s and 60′s illustration these will make a beautiful and affordable addition to your home.
I discovered this beautiful print at Spitalfields antique market a couple of weeks ago. Peggy Wickham was a children’s illustrator in the 50′s and the daughter of Mabel Lucie Atwell. I love the colours in this print and the bright yellow painted frame. I’ve been thinking of introducing colour in to framing for quite some time, I’m a little tired of black or white.
Better still I’ve discovered a company that are reproducing Peggy’s work so watch this space because her work will soon be adorning the walls of Elphick’s and the online shop too.
But for now you can enjoy my purchase which is proudly hanging on my new studio wall.
