Valence House – Acrylic Painting

painting by Pat Harrison aka Rainer Hillebrand

Valence House Museum – Dagenham

A little while ago I was able to tell you about my upcoming solo exhibition at a museum in Greater London in 2017. As there are some 14 paintings to be got ready for the occasion I thought I would start as early as possible. So today I can present my first work of the series.

The theme is about two towns either side of the English Channel one in England and one in Germany. They started their friendship almost immediately after WWII to help heal the wounds.

In the beginning there was just a chance meeting of an Englishman and a POW under a tree to shelter from the rain back in 1946. Today regular exchange visits continue between the towns while the two men have long passed on.

In our war ridden times a reminder of how people can overcome animosities if only the statesmen let them should be very welcome.
