I was fortunate enough (but nearly missed the boat!) to be able to buy these original Bob Marrion watercolours recently. Charles S Grant was selling them off on behalf of Bob's widow, so given that this was probably a unique opportunity I bought these four at a very reasonable price.
Confederate States Marines 1863
2nd Wisconsin, Bull Run 1861
Major, 33rd Virginia, Manassas 1861 (Northern-style rank insignia)
Private, 33rd Virginia, Manassas 1861
I think everyone would agree that these are beautiful and I feel very fortunate to be able to hang them in my house.
Wonderful, you can stare into each one for ages, the detail, proportion and animation is lovely.ReplyDelete
Norm, I agree, they are mesmerisingReplyDelete
Beautiful Colin - can I ask what sze they are as they look quite large - A4?ReplyDelete
Hi Carlo, they're not all the same size but are all roughly A4 give or take an inch or so.ReplyDelete
Glad you got some too Colin. When i got my Napoleonic ones I was delighted with the detail and vibrancy of the colours which you just don't get in the published work.ReplyDelete
Colin, they are marvellous, simply marvellous! Thanks for sharing these imagesReplyDelete
Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing them with us.ReplyDelete
Very nice Colin.ReplyDelete
I too have some originals from Bob. He was a true gent.
