NORMAN WILKINSON CLASSIC POSTER ART

Only just over 2 weeks to go before the opportunity to purchase one of Norman Wilkinson’s original artworks for classic poster designs ends. See http://www.travellingartgallery.com/landscape/print/merchandise/artwork/A071.html for full details of the sale. The paintings have generated some media interest in newspapers and a BBC Radio Berkshire slot where I was interviewed about the artist and railway posters. Wilkinson lived in this area at one time.

 

MORE ARTIST’S ARTWORK FOR SALE ON TAG WEBSITE

I am continuing to add to the Travelling Art Gallery website various paintings for sale by the carriage print and poster artists. Many of these artworks from the mid or early 20th century were not railway-related and were either for exhibitions, private sale, commissioned work for other companies or for teaching the art of watercolour, varying from demonstration sketches to full-blown paintings. One of Leonard Squirrell’s commissioned works for Waddingtons, featuring Whitby, Yorkshire is particularly striking – see  http://www.travellingartgallery.com/landscape/print/merchdetail/S878.html . There are many images to look at and a variety of styles, including pencil sketches and works on canvas. I shall be adding to these in the coming months.

 

I really appreciate the many messages of support since I seriously injured my right leg 12 weeks ago when it tried to compete with a stack of glass. The glass won very convincingly. Improvement is slow but sure and I hope to be driving short distances again soon. Prayer helps!

Kind regards,

Greg
