Signed by Artist bottom rightThis is the Signed original Gouache painting by John Worsley.
A fantastic painting depicting the launch of a wonderful new cruise ship, painted by Worsley for a full page of Treasure magazine. Wee Willie Winkie waves a Japanese flag and stand with friends next to his brilliant friend Hannibal the baby elephant.
The figures in the foreground are painted meticulously each with their individual characteristics vibrant, whilst the mingling crowd comprised of a sea of heads and faces are painted by Worsley using extremely free lines which add to the excitement of the piece.
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.
