1971This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.
Wee Willie Winkie takes command of a vessel and with an expression of delighted glee in this masthead painting. This is a rare chance to own a piece with it's masthead still intact. Note that there is an amount of dried glue residue around this masthead.
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.
A lovely piece of watercolour work by John Worsley for a page of the Treasure annual 1971.
