50th Anniversary of the Death of Ralph Vaughan Williams

I have done a new portrait of Ralph Vaughan Williams for the 50th anniversary of his death tomorrow. The portrait is a photoetching from one of my pencil drawings and has a background of his better known works. The border is a monoprint and represents the 'Lark Ascending'

It's amazing that he is ranked at no1 and no3 in this year's ClassicFM Hall of fame (300 classical pieces ranked according to the listeners' votes).

No1 is his 'Lark Ascending'
No3 is his 'Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis'.
