A limited edition print of Brixham sailing trawler Provident, thought to be the last available of its kind, has gone under the hammer to raise money for the Trinity Sailing Foundation.
The stunning signed print, titled simply “Provident” by well-respected artist Michael Lees, had a limited number of 850 prints and it is thought this is the last available copy.
Mr Lees has produced several maritime-themed pieces of artwork, which have been endorsed by the likes of Sir Robin Knox-Johnson.
He said: “Michael Lees’ painting shows that he is one of those rare artists who is able to capture the moods of the sea and ships.”
Two prints — which are signed copies number 550 and 551 — were kindly passed on to Trinity by keen sailor and Devon man Ian Grimble who said he would like to see all of the proceeds go towards the boats’ upkeep.
The other print, number 550, was sold last week — with all the proceeds going to the Trinity Sailing Foundation — so this is the last chance if you would like to own an original signed print.
You can make a bid, via eBay, with the auction going live today (Friday, May 1st) and lasting for 10 days
