The Little River

Ships from

This beautiful work continues John Olsen's ongoing fascination with the fluid movement of water and the buzzing activity of animal life living on and around Australian ponds and streams. When you look closely, it is full of wild life: frogs, fish, plants and birds.

Each unframed, limited edition fine art reproduction is hand signed by Olsen. Every work is blind embossed with a frog design drawn and approved by Olsen, along with the publisher Digital Art Directory's logo and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Strictly limited to a total edition size of 99. Delivery can take up to 20 days.
