Cowntess Alice

Cowntess Alice. Standing cow: 95" x 29" x 57". Beautiful, Countess Alice was created by the bereaved children in the Dovetail Group at Princess Alice Hospice and gifted artist, Emma Allen. Aged from just 4 to 11 years old, the children come to our monthly Dovetail Group to meet and make friends. Guided by our specially trained team they use arts and crafts to help express their feelings, to start talking about the person theyve lost and begin to manage their emotions better. The boys and girls were excited to be able to use a special group session to let their imaginations run free - decorating our cow with their own multi-coloured mini cow portraits and drawings of exotic animals including lions, elephants and a wonderful peacock on her forehead! Artist, Emma then skilfully linked the images into a unifying design. The finished work was unveiled by our wonderful sponsor, Exponent, at the Dovetail childrens annual family picnic. The whole process has been great fun and the children say decorating Cowntess Alice was the best ever! We hope that she goes to a good home but it would be lovely to have her back for visits if that was at all possible - everyone at our Hospice has become quite attached to her! The proceeds of Cowntess Alices sale will be split between the Surrey Hills Trust Fund and Princess Alice Hospice to fund its vital ongoing care and support of patients and their families. Please note that net proceeds are split between Surrey Hills Trust and the Charity Selected for each cow. VAT is additionally payable on the hammer price for each cow at the current rate of 20%. There is NO ADDITIONAL BUYERS PREMIUM PAYABLE FOR THIS SALE as this is being waived by Ewbanks for this auction. All cows are made from fibreglass.

Joe Tilson initially worked as a carpenter and cabinet maker from 1944 to 1946, before carrying out his national service in the RAF 1946-49. Tilson studied in London at St Martin's School of Art, London (1949-52) and the Royal College of Art (1952-55). He worked at first in a fairly conventional realist style. In the late 1950s he began to produce reliefs in wood, making use of his carpentry skills with which he invented highly original Pop Art images using bold colours and schematised imagery. Although much of Tilson's work retained a handmade look, by the mid 1960s he was marking creative use of technology, notably in his editioned screenprints and multiples. In 1972 Tilson moved from London to Wiltshire where he at once planted a wood and again favoured traditional craftsmanship and became interested in the symbolism of the four elements and in natural cycles. In the 1980s and 1990s he often used inscriptions and motifs drawn from classical mythology - latterly Greek which he mined for subject matter in his paintings. 1012
