A visit to the TATE in London is always good fun. On our last trip we picked up a copy of this print from Nicholas Munro, which now hangs happily in our office.Sheep 1970 by Nicholas Monro born 1936

We had the pleasure of meeting the Derry man, and his wife Marie, at Artists / Heaney / Books: An Exhibition at IMMA celebrating the poet’s 70th birthday in 2009. IMMA specially commissioned a beautiful pair of prints by English-born artist, Barrie Cooke, and Seamus Heaney. The above Louis le Brocquy portrait of Heaney was also part of Imma Editions.
