Harvest Moon 27.09.2018
The theme of this painting is emigration, a harvest Moon over a famous ship, the clipper ‘Samuel Plimsoll’, on one of the most historic pieces of water in Britain, The Plymouth Cattewater.
Plymouthians can be proud, not so long ago Plymouth played a central role ‘exporting’ migrants, a lost history.
A significant lost history of Plymouth now documented by this painting.
In the wake of the famous ‘Mayflower’ voyage, tens of thousands of migrants passed through Plymouth particularly during the 18 th and 19 th century.
