Home from the Shoot Metal Wall Art, British Countryside Memorabilia
Artist Kevin Walsh has captured this nostalgic image of a game keeper and his faithful dog returning home from the shoot. A vintage advertising sign for James Purdey & Sons, the ‘King of Gunmakers’. Established in 1814, this family run business has been running for over two hundred years. This would be a great decorator’s piece for hallways, studies, Man-Caves, and home bars.
Born in Yorkshire in 1950, he studied illustration at Wakefield College of Art. Kevin developed an early reputation for accurate technical paintings, historical detail combined with an ability to capture the warmth and atmosphere of his subjects, these are the hallmarks of this remarkably accomplished artist. He travels many miles to research his paintings and spends countless hours sketching before committing the final composition to canvas.
Your Home from the Shoot Metal Wall Art will come with pre drilled holes in each corner for easy fixing. We recommend that your Metal Wall Art is suitable for Indoor hanging (preferably out of direct sunlight) or in a shaded area outside. These signs are NOT UV treated, but you can apply a suitable UV resistant spray post purchase to prolong it’s vibrant colours for a longer period of time ( available from most DIY stores and online ). Signs placed in direct sunlight will naturally fade over time. However, placing your sign in the right place will ensure years of happy viewing.
