The Mall ,Ramelton, Co Donegal
Hand printed linocuts of birds and animals native to Ireland and Britain. A linocut is a relief print, like a woodcut. The image is carved out of a lino block and what remains will print when the inked roller is passed over the top of the block. Paper is laid on the inked block and burnished by hand or passed through a press which leaves an impression.
All linocuts are hand printed on 100% acid free block printing paper. Some variation of colour and tone is to be expected as this is a hand applied process (not a digital print) so each print is an original piece of art.
The Mall Ramelton
Renowned as one of Ireland’s leading galleries, Ross Fine Art has built a reputation for exhibiting some of the most outstanding work by established and emerging artists and sculptors.

Since 2006 we have been committed to seeking out distinctive artists and makers from Ireland and overseas. Our emphasis is on showcasing exquisite artwork, catering for the discerning collector and for those who desire a beautiful piece to own or to give as a special gift. We urge our artists to produce small affordable pieces as well as their collectable gallery work.
We are continually adding to our stunning collection and now promote more than fifty remarkable artists and craft makers.
