War & Peace, L. Tolstoy.

£75.00

Speaking of his great work, War and Peace, he said it’s “not a novel, even less is it a poem, and still less a historical chronicle”. Whether a novel or a great work of philosophical discussion, War and Peace represents a pinnacle of Russian Literature in the 19th Century. Using the title page of this epic work, I have illustrated here an acrylic portrait of the great Russian writer and philosopher.
Illustrated on a hammer embossed fine art paper, this one-of-a-kind artwork is finished by floating in an inch deep, 7×7” black frame.

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.
