Renowned artist and former international cricketer, Jack Russell MBE, has completed his latest painting ... of Broadhalfpenny Down.
He attended the celebration of 250 years of first class cricket at the end of June in the match between Hampshire All Stars and All England.
Jack’s cricketing pictures are legendary; famed for his eccentricities and floppy white sunhat Jack played in 944 matches for Gloucestershire and 94 International matches for England, before retiring in 2004. Self-taught, Jack decided to become a painter as a result of frustration at being stuck inside cricket pavilions when “rain stopped play.”
A limited edition of 250 high-quality prints are now available to purchase for £250 each with all proceeds going to fund the charitable work of the Broadhalfpenny Down Preservation Trust.
Measuring 17.5" x 31" including a 2" white border, each giclee is personally titled and signed by Jack.
The giclee print takes the standard of reproducing an original work to the top level. The 7 colour process (as opposed to the standard print 4 colour) produces superb results on museum standard acid free paper. . The thickness of the museum paper used means that your giclee cannot be rolled up in a tube so is carefully flat packed prior to posting. Once you have ordered we will then contact you to arrange it’s safe delivery.
At this stage we anticipate taking orders will be taken until mid-October (and then maybe a further batch in 2023).
