This mini print was produced for the Whitworth to accompany the recent exhibition Althea McNish: Colour is Mine, a touring exhibition from the William Morris Gallery. McNish was the first Caribbean designer to achieve international recognition and one of the most influential and innovative textile designers in the UK.
Featuring a reproduction of Althea's Painted Desert design (held within the Whitworth's Collection) this 11x14" print is printed onto quality paper stocks by King&Mcgaw, who are leading experts in fine art print publishing based in Sussex.
