The iconic, ancient Royal Oak tree in Richmond Park is the subject of a stunning new artwork by acclaimed artist Mark Frith and commissioned by the Friends of Richmond Park (FRP) as emblem for their conservation campaign, Year of the Tree.
To celebrate and raise funds for the Year of the Tree conservation campaign, a limited edition of 100 signed prints have been produced. Priced at £385 each (inc. delivery), the unmounted prints are 90 x 72 cm, individually giclee printed on 310 gm etching paper, each signed, titled and numbered by Mark Frith.
The limited edition prints have proved very popular and all are now sold (23 January 2020).
Smaller 35cm x 28cm, non limited edition prints, are on sale at the Richmond Park Visitor Centre, priced at £30 (unmounted).
Earlier this year, Mark Frith’s collection of 20 large ancient oak drawings (which took him three and half years to complete) was a major exhibition at Kew Gardens’ Shirley Sherwood gallery. Mark’s new subject, the Royal Oak, is estimated to be over 600 years old – already standing for centuries before King Charles I enclosed Richmond Park in 1637 – with the picture started in early spring and completed in September 2019.
