This print has been unavailable for over twenty years now, and we were quite excited to obtain a copy. Unlike John Paul’s more recent prints, this one was produced by offset lithography, and has a much richer quality. The eyes and each beak were hand coloured by the artist.
I asked John Paul if this was the mommy goose or the daddy goose.
“Definitely the daddy goose.”
“You sound so certain. But how can you tell? I think it’s the mommy goose.”
He gave me a very long and involved explanation, none of which convinced me. If you buy this print, I will ask him to write it out for you. Perhaps you will believe him. One goose looks very much like the other to me.
