Wild Flowers and Windmill
This beautiful Limited-Edition 'impressionist' Fine Art print shows a beautiful bed of wild flowers with Whitburn Windmill, Tyne & Wear as their backdrop.
The earliest known records of a mill on this site date back to 1779, with this particular @tower' mill dating from 1790. It was in use until 1896, when steam mills took over.
The sails, cap, fantail and grindstones disappeared, and only the stone tower remained. However, during the Second World War it provided a valuable look out post for enemy aircraft.
A series of restoration projects began in 1991, in which walls were repaired, doors and windows opened up, floors rebuilt, staircases and information panels installed. Then more recently, the lime mortar and decaying plaster, replacing internal timber floors and restoring the windmill blades.
The artwork is strictly limited to a run of 25, assuring you of rare wall-art wherever it is displayed.
It is numbered and signed by the photographer and is accompanied by an embossed, signed letter of authenticity, with the limited-edition sequence number of the piece, along with a copy of the artwork.
I print on beautiful Fine Art paper, using archival inks.
