John Worsley
Scared of A Mouse (Original)

Scared of A Mouse (Original) by John Worsley at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: WorsleyJElephantM (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: John Worsley (biography)
Medium: Watercolour on Board
Size: 11" x 16" (280mm x 405mm)
Date: 1971

This is the original Watercolour painting by John Worsley.

A beautiful illustration board painted by John Worsley for a page of Wee Willie Winkie. The vibrant colours and Willie's animated features make this a truly splendid painting full of dynamic charge.

The thin brush strokes add subtle definition, these coupled with the bold highlights and overall yellow glow of the piece, casting an oversized shadow of the mouse on Hannibal the Elephant's head, make for a wonderfully rich piece.

Worsley, who spent time in a P.O.W. camp after being captured in Yugoslavia during WWII, achieves a fantastic liberation from the past by painting in such a fluid joyful manner.

Worsley's work can be found in The Imperial War Museum, The Maritime Museum, The collection of HM The Queen, The Savage club and many other private collections including those of Royal Families, banks and Colleges.

It should be noted that the portrait of Winkie above Hannibal in this piece has been stuck on by the artist and the surrounding edges and cuts to the board have been trimmed.
