‘The Lads’ (in search of chicks) is a somewhat saucy, tongue in cheek piece within Paul’s Urban Collection.
The Indian runner ducks have been relocated in this instance, as he found these particular characters on a friend’s farm in Yorkshire. He painted them previously on grass setting, with the title ‘Forerunners’. Harkening back though to his times travelling the Inland waterways on his narrowboat ‘Fools Paradise?’ he witnessed similar scenes of waterfowl along the graffiti and detritus strewn towpaths. Here he has included a ‘Lads’ magazine discarded in the corner. It is a ‘sold out’ edition and very desirable on the secondary market. Look out though as you might find similar ducks in a future creation…..
