That's it! I must go and look for myself... What a beautiful painting, far more interesting and intimate than a photograph and more lasting. Glorious colours! Pity it was only the well- to-do and famous who could have their portraits painted. Same today for that matter....Very interesting.
What a beautiful painting..I love portraits and would give anything to be able to paint like that..I must go and have a look at it..and see who the artist was.
See you there Maureen... ;0))
Lovely painting. He looks like my friend Geoff!
Sir John's motto was 'It's dogged that does it', which proves him to be a proper Wiganner.
Painting by John Henry Lorimer.
Veronica, I have emailed you. xx
P.S. The house in which he was born became Pendleburys department store.
Maureen, For me to tell you here that the painting was done by John Henry Lorimer (You might already have discovered this fact yourself.), will give you the opportunity to discover how good the artist really was, and to make your eventual gallery walk even more fulfilling.
Thank you very much Phillip G,.I must go and see it.xx
Hello Phillip,I've just found him on Google (thanks to you) and his paintings are beautiful..what a gift ( and I thought I could paint) lol..plus he had a very interesting life..thank you again Phillip.xx
Well-Done!, Maureen. Now you'll be able to stand before the painting and say 'He did some wonderful work!', instead of saying, 'I wonder who painted it?'.
