Richard Hook (biography)Medium:
Gouache on BoardSize:
28" x 10" (710mm x 245mm)Date:
1973This is the original Gouache painting by Richard Hook.
The Edwardians: When Britannia Ruled the Waves. Crowds jeered and booed when King Edward drove in state through Paris with President Loubet but the king's good-natured reaction soon brought a friendly response from the people.
Please note that due to its size this board was cut down the middle (to the left of the King) at some point during printing or storage. The board has been reinforced on the reverse. This fantastic panoramic painting is therefore offered at a realistic bargain price.
Original artwork from Look and Learn no. 580 (24 February 1973).
