About

An original signed watercolor on heavy wove paper by English artist Ken Burton (1946-) titled "Pershore, Worcestershire", 1988. Hand signed by Burton lower right. Beautifully matted with hand decorated archival French matting. Matted size: 21.25" x 26". Image size: 12.5" x 18.5". Has been professionally stored away for decades, never framed. Mint condition. Pershore is a market town in Worcestershire, England, on the banks of the River Avon. Pershore is in the Wychavon district and is part of the West Worcestershire parliamentary constituency. At the 2011 census the population was 7,125. Born in Peterborough in 1946, Ken Burton's interest in art began at school and led him to an initial choice of career in design and engraving, in which he trained with Joseph Hules, in London. He left in 1970 to enter public service (The British Police Force), but later "retired" in 1986 to settle down and return to his real vocation, capturing the beauty of the English countryside in watercolor. He says he has "never worked so hard in his life". Increasingly sought after, Ken's works may be found in many leading art galleries throughout the United Kingdom, and are represented in numerous private collections both at home and abroad, particularly in the United States and Japan.
