This artist’s card by Euan Uglow is a light-hearted take on the genre of Christmas cards. It is a linocut with a felt detail. It shows a simple female figure with a red felt bustier. While it is a Christmas card it also echoes naughty sea-side greetings cards with images of glamorous girls.

As a painter, Uglow was particularly known for his female nudes and studies of the female form; this card is a more humorous example of the same subject.
