  • About the work
    Rendered in greyscale, the architectural features of a fireplace enable the artist to place a number of domestic ornaments and keepsakes: from the Persian metal teapot on a ledge to the left, with a vase as its pendant to the right; to animal figurines across the main mantelpiece, and pictorial postcards suggesting a reproduction of a painting to the right, and a botanical drawing to the left. David Coster is a Scottish painter, who specialises in still-life scenes. He is affiliated with the British Federation of Artists and this print was acquired in 1977 as part of a group, from the Mall Galleries in London.
