Product story

Sheep Meadow is a large lawn in Central Park, New York. Bill Jacklin RA says it is invariably inhabited with a motley group of individuals going about their business or relaxing in the sun. This work is one of two etchings drawn from various sketches Jacklin made over the years while observing Sheep Meadow. Sheep Meadow NYCI and Sheep Meadow NYCII explore the relationship between the figures in the park, their shadows and the patterns that are created.

All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.



“I always thought of the city as an arena, the light shining down is my spotlight, in which I can create my own drama.”

The London-born artist is best known for his dramatic depictions of New York, where he lived for two decades. Recording “people involved in their passions”, Jacklin examines the flow of forms and the play of light.


The RA Editions programme generates valuable revenue for the RA and in particular the RA Schools.​​
