Item Description

This painting depicts a vessel called the 'Spirit of Bermuda' passing through 'Two Rock' passageway heading into Hamilton Harbor and is regarded as Lisa-Anne's strongest scenic view to date - a top gallery seller! It was painted to help celebrate Bermuda's 400th anniversary as this vessel made history by bringing the Tall Ships from Portugal into Bermuda as part of its celebrations! Print is hand signed by the artist. Mat print measures 14 x 11 inches. Lisa-Anne was born on the island of Bermuda but spent most of her life in England, where she showed a keen interest in art. She never could forget the beauty of her birthplace and in 2001 she returned to Bermuda as artist-in-residence with the Masterworks Foundation. Lisa-Anne studied Drawing and Painting at the world-renowned Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, but found her artistic inspiration more focused and assured in Bermuda. Her favorite motif includes capturing local children in front of old traditional Bermuda cottages. Lisa-Anne’s paintings often feature in the Bermuda Biennial, which is hosted at the Bermuda National Gallery, judged by overseas art curators. Lisa-Anne has opened a new gallery in the Clock Tower Mall in Dockyard, where she loves to talk directly with customers regarding her artistic vision and originals and high-quality reproductions.
