Peter Howson - Footballers Wife is a classic style of printmaking by one of Scotlands leading artists. Howson's work depicts strong characters and sometimes focuses on themes of a religious nature. In this image, we have a scene that can be interpreted in many ways, as always the mystery and discovery is the joy of art. Howson has produced many paintings involving football over the years. This piece is a commentary on how much of the modern game is focused off the pitch rather than on it.
