Medium: Gouache on Board
Size: 12" x 11" (315mm x 290mm)
Date: 1963

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

This striking yet beautifully detailed painting by the Johnstone Twins first appeared in an issue of Finding Out magazine and was later Published in Robert Lancelyn Green's book 'Tales of the Greeks and Trojans'.

Hector, the greatest warrior of Greece is portrayed dying, impaled by the spear of Achilles. As he falls, Hector curses Achilles to be hit by a fateful arrow.

This board has been cut to shape by the publisher, and has also been marked with three registration crosses. The reverse shows handwritten pencilled instructions "Cut Out Lettering", followed by slightly illegible numbers. These factors ass to the history and authenticity of the painting, which is a beautiful original.

This fine painting was featured in 'Finding Out' magazine Volume 1 No. 32.
