1964, gouache, pencil on board
The cover illustration for Consul Books’ 1964 publication of W.A. Ballinger’s book ‘Unfriendly Persuasion’ features a pale blue-green scene crossed through in black with the bars of a prison cell. The harshly lit figure inside is a cold and lonely image. Perfect for the story of a man reduced to murder to protect his cache of stolen money.
The original painting is approximately 40 cm wide x 52 cm tall.The artwork is float mounted on to conservation grade mountboard and presented in a white wooden box frame glazed with anti-reflective glass.
