The Ship! The Hearse! (Vintage)

This limited edition artwork features the final moments of the whaling ship Pequod, driven into the depths by the great white whale, Moby Dick. This adventurous moment was of course created by Herman Melville in his great American epic of the same name.

Using a technique that merges my background of traditional illustration with digital art, these unique artworks capture moments from classic literature in a new and captivating dimension.

Printed on a 190gsm fine art paper, these 8×8” prints have a rich textured finish with an archival quality. Each piece is signed and numbered on the front and arrives sealed with mounting board.

This artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist.

Peter Walters

“Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be”...and for artist Peter it is so much more. Binding his creative talent and love of literature, Peter has established a literary inspired portfolio shared with book lovers and art fans across the globe. With a background in portraiture, Peter spent his formative years in America and The Netherlands, before a return to the UK coincided with a transition to digital art. This merging of traditional illustration with digital art has seen Peter hone a style whose “mix of textures adds an eye-catching dimension to his vibrant collages.” (Publisher's Weekly) Through his work as an illustrator and children's author, Peter is continuously reminded of the lasting impression works of literature can have on people of all ages. Working from his studio in beautiful North Cornwall, Peter takes great pleasure in creating affordable art that can strengthen this bond.
