This painting is of a typical stone built village in the hills of the Italian Riviera. It was restored by the Norwegian anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl who found it largely abandoned in the 1960s. He is famous for the Kon Tiki expedition that crossed the Pacific Ocean on a raft from Peru to Polynesia, proving ancient peoples could have done this. The view is of the entrance to the Heyerdahl home which passed to the family after Thor died several years ago, actually at this home, in 2002.
The painting is Winsor and Newton watercolour paints on cold pressed, acid free, 300gsm watercolour paper. Ready for your own choice of mount and frame, the paper is A3 size as detailed below. The original artwork comes with my signature on the front and a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
The work is also shown with a mount and frame but this is for illustration purposes only. The room simulation photo may not represent the actual scale of the painting - check the dimensions given here.
