This specially commissioned watercolour by artist Douglas West is now a superb limited edition print of 248 (the number on Morse’s Jaguar numberplate). The illustration is taken from a watercolour entitled Morse’s Three-Pint Problem, a pun on how Morse liked to solve a case as opposed to Sherlock Holmes who found his tricky cases Three Pipe Problems. The scene is of Morse and Lewis at some country public house enjoying a drink while discussing their latest adventure. In the background can be seen the famous Burgundy Jaguar and beyond the Oxford skyline.
Each print is signed by Colin Dexter and the artist (Douglas E. West) thus making it a rare and collectable item. Each print is also individually numbered, bears the society logo, and title of Morse’s Three Pint Problem.
Print size is 33.0 cm by 49.0 cm and is designed to fit into a 50.0 cm by 70.0 cm standard frame with a 30.0 cm by 45.0 cm standard mount.
Will look beautiful on any wall.
