About Artwork:

The Great Bear is a 1992 lithograph by Simon Patterson. At first glance the work looks like the London Underground Tube map, but Patterson uses each line to represent groups of people, including scientists, saints, philosophers, comedians, explorers and footballers in one of the best known pieces of map art. The copyright of the work is shared between the artist and London Underground from whom the artist obtained permission after protracted negotiation. A copy of The Great Bear can be found in the Tate Gallery. The work is in an edition of 50 with a small additional number of artist's proofs.
