The lithograph is in the style of ‘Patrick’, the persona the artist first adopted in 1967. Having been greatly interested in the work of primitive painters for a number of years, Byrne sent some of his own paintings to a London gallery with a letter stating that they had been created by his father, Patrick, who had received no formal art training. Although he did not maintain the deception for long, he nonetheless signed many of paintings this way in the 1960s and 1970s. The bulky figure of the cow sits alongside self portrait of the artist. Not a Laurie Robertson & Celie Byrne design. £350
