102364 | GREAT BRITAIN. "Good Night, Good Morning" cast bronze Medal.
102364 | GREAT BRITAIN. "Good Night, Good Morning" cast bronze Medal. Issued 1990 (115mm, 12h). By P. J. Ellis for the British Art Medal Society.
Plate of breakfast, with two eggs, two strips of bacon, and a sausage, all in the form of a smiling face / Crescent moon with closed eye, along with knitted sock and glove. Edge: Plain.
BAMS 18. Essentially as made. Brown surfaces, with intense, tactile relief. From an extremely limited issuance of just 16 pieces cast.
An incredibly massive and impressively whimsical piece, this specimen is ultra-modern and avant-garde, while also feeling sculpted as a nod to the renaissance. About Ellis and this piece, the British Art Medal Society notes that "...his medal was inspired by the ‘raw, crass humour’ of comics and the ‘dumb wackiness’ of animated cartoons. On one side, a face-pulling breakfast grins at the sunshine, whilst on the other the spookier world of the dark is manifested in woolly gloves and socks."
