Friederike Seide is an award-winning artist from Germany, latterly based in St Andrews. This exceptional woodcut displays the artist’s skill and characteristic light-hearted, affectionate treatment of the town’s folklore. There are six ghosts of St Andrews depicted. Each is depicted in such a way that elicits more sympathy than genuine fright. There is a ghost of a soldier, Sergeant John Ripley, who fell from a ladder to his death at Castlecliffe (where the School of Economics and Finance at St Andrews University is now based), after having survived the horrors of WW2. . . the ghost on the Old Course of young Tom Morris, who died of a broken heart . . . a complete guide to the characters depicted is provided on a post-card with each woodcut print.
A delightful work, rich in content and skill. Available to purchase with OwnArt.
