BBC RADIO INTERVIEWS & MEDIA INTEREST IN NORMAN WILKINSON ARTWORK

BLOG 11 NOV 2010
The interview with BBC Radio Ulster (Radio 4) went well (apart from the discernible groan when I mentioned that Wilkinson’s painting of Plymouth Harbour, which hung in the 1st class smoking room of the Titanic, was only the tip of the iceberg in his prolific output of artwork, ahem. Other newspaper and radio interviews are on the cards. Commercial art is growing in interest. Hope to get to Pershore auction of railwayana this weekend. Have uploaded more artwork for sale on the website,too, see http://www.travellingartgallery.com/landscape/print/merchandise/artwork.html
PS Off crutches now after 18 weeks. There’s always a lot to be grateful for!

Kind regards to all,

Greg

BBC RADIO ULSTER Interview on NORMAN WILKINSON 3rd November 2010

I will be interviewed on BBC Radio Ulster, ARTS EXTRA Programme tonight around 6.30pm re the work of Sir Norman Wilkinson. It looks as if the 20th century commercial artists are starting to get the wider recognition they deserve. It is in connection with one of his posters for the LMS which is being sold in the annual Christies Poster Sale in London on Friday. See http://www.christies.com/LotFinder/searchresults.aspx?intSaleID=22899#action=…&intSaleID=22899&sid=a114722b-cc9c-4553-948d-f2b30dc4520a for details of sale.
PS Am now walking (rather, hobbling!) without crutches, thank God.
Kind regards to all readers, Greg
