W.L.Wyllie weekend in Portsmouth

Robert Perera exhibited W.L.Wyllie etchings to invited guests of the Royal Navy after a dinner on HMS Victory during a W.L.Wyllie weekend in Portsmouth dockyard.



BBC Flog-It!

Robert Perera Fine Art was asked by the BBC’s Flog-it! antique program to talk about their extensive collection of W.L.Wyllie R.A. paintings and etchings. The program, based in Portsmouth, visited the Robert Perera Fine Art Gallery in Lymington to learn a little more about the work of this talented marine artist.

Wyllie's Panorama

Robert Perera accompanied the BBC’s Paul Martin to the Historic Dock Yard in Portsmouth to visit The Panorama of the Battle of Trafalgar painted by Wyllie in 1930. This 42ft x 12ft panorama is said to be his greatest work. Tower House, Wyllie’s home in Portsmouth was visited in order to compare the seascapes in Wyllie’s etchings with the modern view from the Round Tower.

ITV “David Dickinson’s Name Your Price”

Recently the gallery lent pictures to an ITV television antique program “David Dickinson’s Name Your Price”. These included a Tracey Emin lithograph and a 1930s railway poster.
