Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone
Perseus and the Deadly Discus (Original)

Perseus and the Deadly Discus (Original) by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: JohnstoneJDiscus (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone (biography)
Medium: Gouache on Board
Size: 7" x 13" (170mm x 335mm)
Date: 1966

This is the original Gouache painting by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone.

This painting by twins Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone portrays Perseus competing in the discus throw which veered off course and struck Acrisius, killing him instantly.

The twins painted their works together, this being a simple yet stylistically pleasing example that was first published in Finding Out magazine and subsequently in Robert Lancelyn Greene's extremely rare book 'Jason and the Golden Fleece'.

This board was cut to shape by the publisher to fit text around the image and unfortunately has one dog eared corner to the bottom right. This is reflected in the price.
