Of gold leaf

I was delighted to welcome Monsieur Gilbert Duval, deputy mayor of Théhillac, France, a retired artisan, a friend with a shared interest in French wines, who used to own a foundry that was particularly noted for exquisite brass works.

Monsieur Duval had been given a beautiful, antique small frame to restore with new gold leaf and having long admired my #painting “Plymouth, Emigration“, he asked me to paint this miniature measuring a petite 19.6 x 24.8 cm (7¾” x 9¾”)

Thus we have the clipper ship “Samuel Plimsoll” at Plymouth loading migrants.
