Monk Bar, a print of York by YorkArtist's resident artist Mark Braithwaite
From The Classic York Collection
In the city of York, testament to its Viking history, many of the streets are known as "Gates" (from the Danish word for street), and the stone gatehouses in the city walls are "Bars".
One of the four main gateways in the ancient city wall, Monk Bar now houses the Richard III Museum. It is the only one of the Bars which has a working portcullis.
Monk Bar, York; painted in acrylic on canvas by York Artist MJ Braithwaite. Look for Lucy, MJ Braithwaite's black cat trademark!
Available presented in an antique white 240x300mm mount.
A larger, artist signed version, presented in a 300x400mm mount, is also available.
