After many requests from the public and art community, Joe has decided to release ‘The Endeavour‘ Artists Proofs from his archive for sale. There is only one artist proof for each limited edition print and only one of Joes personal copies of from each edition. These unique pieces are presented framed and come with a certificate of authenticity.
Whitby is part of the fabric of our Island history, both factual and fictional. It is, of course, where Dracula came ashore in Bram Stokers classics novel. It is also the home, at least for his early working life, of one of the greatest of all Yorkshiremen, Captain James Cook. In his iconic ship the Endeavour, he became one of histories greatest maritime explorers.
“I never pass up the opportunity to paint a beautiful ship. She never sailed from Whitby but I loved the idea of painting her in her spiritual home, where her famous Captain learned his trade.”
