Wee Willie Winkie's Adventure in Cairo (Originals)

Wee Willie Winkie's Adventure in Cairo (Originals) by Wee Willie Winkie (Worsley) at The Illustration Art Gallery

Medium: Watercolours on Board

Date: 1963

These are the unique original Watercolour paintings by John Worsley.

Wee Willie Winkie rides towards the Mosque of Muhammad Ali in Cairo on Hannibal the Baby Elephant alongside his Egyptian guide. This gorgeously light and airy watercolour was painted for a page of Treasure magazine No 19. The fluid washes of paint create a lovely atmosphere for the protagonist's adventure. The leaves of the palms in the foreground are deftly painted, and the mosque itself is very accurate.

Please note: this piece comes with 2 complimentary watercolour panels painted by Worsley free of charge.

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.
