This beautiful concertina card features details from paintings that decorate the walls of the cafe at Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park, Warwickshire, England.

In 2018, following the success of The Lost Words exhibition at Compton Verney, Jackie Morris was commissioned to produce artwork to decorate the walls of the gallery’s cafe. The brief was to incorporate something from the grounds around the house. Birds have always held a fascination for the artist. Swallows are a real harbinger of the seasons, and goldfinches are the charm from the book, The Lost Words.

All images are produced using watercolour and observation, and pieced together by Design Penguin.
