This painting is in excellent condition.Born in 1925 in Devon England, Roy won a scholarship to the Bristol College of Art when he was eleven. In 1948, after serving 3 years in the Royal Navy, Roy joined a 4 man party that travelled through Canada and North America. For part of their journey they canoed in a 18 foot canvas covered cedar canoe starting at the Columbia River and then up the Snake River, the North Platte and eventually the Mississippi. It was during this trip that Kerswill became interested in the history of the American west which influenced so many of his paintings.
Roy worked in both oil and watercolor mediums. He was best known for his paintings of the Tetons and historical scenes depicting the settling of the West. He also travelled widely and painted in Colorado, Arizona, California, New York, Montana and Europe.He participated in many art shows throughout his career and was one of a handful of artists to be invited each year to the Wyoming Governor's Invitational Art Show. Roy has said, I paint because it is an adventure into something strange and beautiful. I paint because it is pleasurable like smelling the rain, touching a child, loving a woman, singing to the wind or listening to the hushed roar of the wind in the forest. As I strive to reach and understand this thing, I become attuned or imbued with something very beautiful, and it is this exciting sensation which drives me on.
