Signed by artist bottom rightThis is the Signed unique original Gouache painting by Andrew Howat.
Two original illustrations used to illustrate the incident in 1961 when a retired London bus driver, Kempton Bunton, allegedly stole Goya's painting of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square London.
He stole the painting by putting it under his coat and walking out of the gallery. He returned the painting some months later and much later - in 1969 - his son John admitted to the theft.
Illustrated here is the theft and a depiction of the original Goya painting. They are mounted together and professionally framed. Professionally matted and framed.
