Vintage set 4 Gran'Pop by Lawson Wood illustrations

£45.00

Product description

Lawson Wood, sometimes Clarence Lawson Wood, (23 August 1878 – 26 October 1957), was an English painter, illustrator and designer known for humorous depictions of cavemen and dinosaurs, policemen, and animals, especially a chimpanzee called Gran'pop, which these illustrations are an example of. Wood was decorated by the French for his gallantry at Vimy Ridge during World War I. He was deeply concerned with animal welfare and was awarded membership in the Royal Zoological Society in 1934. His animal designs were reproduced as wooden toys and he established a sanctuary for aged creatures. In his later years, he was a recluse and died in Devon in 1957.

These four vintage prints dated approx. 1940 with embossed boarder and headings are in wonderful vibrant colours each depicting a little scene with Gran'Pop. Condition is very good with only some minor rubbing marks.

Titles:
Grandpop is eighty-four
"Next please!"
Bananas when Grandpop was young
Grandpop wins the toss!

Measures: 10 x 7"
