‡Guy Taplin (b.1939) Mallard painted wood bird sculpture with applied eyes incised signature Guy Taplin and titled Mallard, 35cm. wide Provenance: The Estate of Dame Elisabeth Frink & Lin Jammet Guy Taplin~s ~Birds~ have become sculptures to me. Here you see a wing raised, or some other characteristic movement of the bird transposed into wood. They are not static but full of movement and the spirit of the bird…We are lucky to own several Taplins from different periods and I think the new departure is exciting. - Dame Elisabeth Frink
