The Market and French Halls in St Peter Port Guernsey on a wet night are beautifully painted by Roy Tubby in Guernsey poster print 12. His mastery of wet reflections and warm glowing street lamps almost puts you in the mood for a spot of Christmas shopping.
This is a familiar scene for Islanders and has been painted by many artists over the centuries. It takes us back to a time before the area was pedestrianised. It would hang alongside any Moss print of the 1830 market scene.
Ray, the artists son has the following to say about this picture. “This is a scene that my dad would have known well and probably had a lot of meaning for him as the local branch of Alcohol Anonymous rented a room in the market and every Monday evening dad would go off to the weekly meeting. All part of his struggle to maintain his sobriety which was hard won one day at a time and for the last thirty years of his life was successful. This picture won first prize in the visual arts competition 1984.”
The print will look fantastic in your lounge, dining room, bedroom, office – just about anywhere! It will also look great with other pictures by Roy that we have on sale.
This is a reproduction of a watercolour by Guernsey artist Roy Tubby. His family and his son, Ray Tubby, have generously given Safer use of the images for two years, so prints will be limited.
With the help of RAS Group Safer has been able to reproduce this art work to raise funds for the charity and thereby help victims of domestic abuse and their children. All money raised from the sale of the prints will assist Safer to help victims of domestic abuse in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
