1970This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.
A superb rendition of a futuristic city painted by John Worsley. The two full colour illustration boards which make up this piece, produced for Treasure magazine 14th March 1970, form an outstandingly vibrant and colourful double page spread that captures the imagination.
Painted with meticulous detail and literally thousands of tiny inhabitants, Worsley's future city engages and inspires.
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.
