The New Eden, Austin O. Spare, 1922. Large landscape lithograph in black mounted frame. This is an original artwork taken from 'The Golden Hind: A Quarterly Magazine of Art and Literature', not a contemporary reproduction of the print. 51cm x 34xm lithograph.

Spare's hauntingly beautiful, 'The New Eden'.  A unique piece, demonstrating the artists idiosyncratic marriage of prodigious draughtsmanship and esoteric symbolism.

A head, suspiciously resembling Spare's own features, floats vampiric above a crescent moon, his chiropteran wings stretched over the crouching nude, where a coiled serpent lays beneath.

“Spare’s medicine is too strong for the average man.” - George Bernard Shaw
