A stunning watercolour titled, 'Ousden Church, Nr Bury St Edmunds' by Michael Pettersson. Signed and dated '4-98' (April, 1998) to lower right.
Michael John Pettersson, was born at 17 Mill Road, Cambridge in 1939, eldest of the three children of Max Leopold Robert Pettersson (15 April 1914-1995), a schoolmaster, and his wife Lillian Marie née Henry (7 March 1911-28 May 1982), who married at Cambridge in 1938. After school and art school, Michael went into advertising, becoming a graphic designer and illustrator. A landscape painter, notably of East Anglia, he has exhibited at Haste Gallery, Ipswich with solo shows in London. In 1992 he was invited to paint and exhibit at Glyndebourne for the Festival Opera Season from his studio at Stowupland, Stowmarket, Suffolk.
The work is house in a gilt glazed frame which shows some wear commensurate with age but remains in a very good condition overall. The painting itself remains in an excellent condition.
