This is the Signed unique original Gouache painting by Gerry Embleton.

This small island off the Sardinian coast was once half owned by the Italian patriot Garibaldi. He lived in exile here after twice failing to usurp Italy's Austrian masters. He owned the north of the island. The southern half was owned by an Englishman who's pigs ran riot on Garibaldi's land.

Lower left we see Garibaldi landing in Sicily at the start of his successful attempt to help create a united free Italy. Also shown is Admiral Nelson who used a natural harbour on the island as a base to harass French shipping.
