You may of seen on our Facebook and Instagram page we shared a painting of an Oil painting of Westburn House by Eric Auld, 1951. In Eric’s painting you can see the original colours of the veranda, now painted black it would be fantastic to reinstate the original colours.
The Facebook post received a great response resulting in the estate of Eric Auld contacting us to offer assistance with the project. Eric’s Daughters have a very generously offered us 100 prints of Eric’s famous Aberdeen skyline to sell to raise funds.
The artist was a much loved Aberdonian who throughout his lifetime celebrated the city and its many virtues. He celebrated, in paint, the wonderful values seen in his city and was passionate about preserving the beloved assets of Aberdeen. It's fitting his paintings are helping raise funds. These prints highlight the beauty of our city and many of the Archibald Simpson designed buildings.
We have 100 (50 of each design) Limited Edition Print Series available to be purchased via our crowdfunder page. Both prints highlight our beautiful city as many of the beautiful buildings designed by Archibald Simpson & his contemporaries.
