SIGNED WOODCUT or Linocut Art PRINT ~ West Port ST ANDREWS SCOTLAND ~ Magnus Dawson
The print depicts the West Port of St Andrews, a monumental entrance to the city built in 1587 . It was less a defensive structure than it was a symbol of civic pride. Its design is based on that of the Netherbow in Edinburgh – which, in turn, was modelled on Paris’s Porte Saint-Honore.
