John Worsley
The Beautiful Swamp (Original)

The Beautiful Swamp (Original) by John Worsley at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: WorsleyJAlligator (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: John Worsley (biography)
Medium: Gouache on Board
Size: 20" x 15" (500mm x 370mm)
Date: 1965

This is the unique original Gouache painting by John Worsley.

An extraordinarily exciting painting here by John Worsley for a full colour page of Wee Willie Winkie published in Treasure magazine.

Using fabulous brush strokes and water colour techniques, Worsley creates an incredible mood with uplifting sparks of colour in the form of elegant birds contrasting starkly with the sinister alligator skulking around the bottom of the marsh.

In the distance, the protagonist rides a marsh buggy with Hannibal the elephant and his friends.

Worsley, who spent time in a P.O.W. camp after being captured in Yugoslavia during World War II, achieves a fantastic liberation from the past by painting in such a fluid joyful manner.

Worsley's work can be found in The Imperial War Museum, The Maritime Museum, The collection of HM The Queen, The Savage club and many other private collections including those of Royal Families, banks and Colleges.
