A hand-signed giclée on paper by Billy Connolly, CBE.

This hand-signed giclée is part of Billy Connolly's Spring 2023 release in his highly successful Born On A Rainy Day collection. Displayed on 100% cotton deckle-edged paper, float-mounted in a black painted and silver foiled pine frames, this artwork will add a bold touch of musical and comedic history to your home.

On creating the piece, Billy says:

“I’m very fond of him. I didn’t know what it was at first, because it didn’t have legs. It was just a shape. It was like a potato scone, and then I got the idea for the horse and I put a head on it, and the legs, but I couldn’t work out a way to put the legs on his back. So I gave it a rest, I put a little chair in.

“I’ve never tried to imagine him going anywhere. He’s just quite happy where he is. He’s not going anywhere fast, and he knows this. He’s very wise.

“I used to draw lots of blindfolds. I was driven to it and I don’t know why. They don’t mean anything to me, and then sometimes they mean lots of different things. It’s my own little language and I enjoy it and happily other people seem to enjoy it too.

“We had a donkey once, and he just stood. He didn’t go to many places. Donkeys are lovely like that, they just stand and think. The Glasgow boxer, Peter Keenan, saw himself as a great working class hero, and he was, and he saw me as that as well. He thought I was another kind of him. And he said: ‘I’ve got the very thing for you’. He bred Clydesdale horses and he had a donkey from somewhere. He said: ‘Do you want a donkey?’ and I said: ‘Yeah, I’d love one!’ He gave us a pregnant donkey, and she gave birth to baby Booby. My eldest daughter Cara used to love them.”

Also available as part of a portfolio of 6, either framed or unframed.
