Out of the Blue, a mounted limited edition from gallery favourite, the late, great Bill Tolley; selling on behalf of a private collector.
Bill's hot air balloon prints and paintings have long been a favourite at the gallery.
Out of the Blue was published by Solomon in Whitehead in 2008, as a giclee on paper, with a limited edition run of 225 prints. This is edition 22 of 225, and is hand signed by the artist.
The current owner purchased the print from ourselves at the time of release, and now wishes to sell it on as a recent move has left no suitable wall space.
The print has been double mounted with outer mount dimensions 50x55cm. The image size is approximately 28x 33cm.
The original Certificate of Authenticity is missing, however we are happy to authenticate the picture as a Bill Tolley work.
As with all secondary market work, the print is 'sold as seen.' The print has been removed from its frame and appears in good condition.
As Tolley fans will be aware, Bill sadly passed away in 2011, and his work is very rarely offered for sale. The picture in on display on the gallery - an early viewing is recommended. Please phone the gallery on 01904 655707 if you wish to express an interest!
Here at The Braithwaite Gallery, Bill's work has provided us, and our customers, with much joy in art form, for almost 20 years; we initially discovered his work through publishing house Solomon & Whitehead, who published Bill's first limited editions of his stylised little houses, at the same time as they were publishing the figurative work of our own Mark Braithwaite. Happy days indeed!
