Jason (Original)

Jason (Original) by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: JohnstoneJManSkin (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone (biography)
Medium: Gouache on Board
Size: 6" x 16" (155mm x 415mm)
Date: 1966

This is the original Gouache painting by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone.

This portrait of Jason from the epic story Jason and the Argonauts was painted by the twins Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone. The twins passed their paintings between themselves and both painted on the same works until they were entirely satisfied with the outcome.

Here, Jason wears but one sandal, the other he has lost whilst carrying an old woman across a stream in a storm. When he reached the other side, the old crone turned out to be none other than Hera, queen of the Gods.

Painted for Finding Out magazine and subsequently collated and printed by Purnell (publisher) for Robert Lancelyn Green's extremely rare book 'Jason and The Golden Fleece'. This board does have three black registration marks used for the printing.
