Stephen Horsfield is a locally based artist with an interest in the history of the area, particularly his home town Blackburn. His paintings of our Victorian and Edwardian past portray the times well, while still managing to retain the earthy grittiness and even the gloom of the original photographs.
Below are three examples of his work, Victoria St, Church St (both Blackburn) and Bolton Rd in Darwen.
If you like what you see and would be interested in owning a print, Stephen can be contacted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I think the prints come in two different sizes 12 x 16 inches and 20 x 24 inches and are on canvas.
I believe he will also do commissioned work, so if you have a favourite image / photograph (Notre Dame Convent maybe? The old market clock tower?, the Vulcan pub?), then contact Stephen and he will advise on time scale, delivery / collection and costs.
DISCLAIMER : I must stress here, that any transaction is strictly between yourself and the artist and vice versa. Neither myself or the site will become involved in any disputes, financial or otherwise.
