This A3 print features the watercolour illustration 'Water, Wind & Sand', by JRR Tolkien.
Tolkien painted this watercolour when he was a student at Exeter College, Oxford. He was inspired by a holiday he had taken the previous summer in Cornwall, walking along the wild coastline of the Lizard peninsula. The vivid colours and impressionistic style are typical of his artwork during this period when he attempted to capture feelings and abstract ideas in a sketchbook which he entitled, ‘The Book of Ishness’.
