More About The Artist:
Norman Wilkinson was born in Cambridge. His greatest love was painting, and he was largely self-taught, in both oil and watercolour. During WWI he created 'Dazzle Painting' as a form of camouflage for ships. He was one of the best marine painters, and his work is in many public collections, including a series of WWII sea battles at the National Maritime Museum. He initiated the 1920s LMS poster work, and created a large number himself over the years. He received his CBE in 1948.
