‘The Quest for Irma I’ – A signed, limited edition silkscreen print with glazes by renowned British artist Tom Phillips, from The Quest for Irma series of five.
The Quest for Irma includes five images that have been reproduced from the iconic series of gouaches that Phillips created in 1973. The series relates to the opera ‘Irma’ composed by Phillips in 1969. The eponymous heroine represents the ideal woman of the hero (Grenville’s) quest. The inspiration for Irma was germinated from Phillips’ ongoing project A Humument. This project, which Phillips has continually worked on since 1966, is a transformation of W.H Mallocks Victorian potboiler ‘A Human Document’, published in 1892.
