Many residents of Collingham and Linton will have seen the large mural in  Collingham Memorial Hall, painted by local artist Jill Neale.  The mural depicts Collingham and Linton villages a century ago, and was commissioned by Collingham Music Association to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

A print of the mural is now available, size 17" x 9.25" (43cm x 23.5cm), price £25.  Jill Neale's contact details are on the Yorkshire Artists page, or a print can be reserved by emailing Polkadot Pictures & Framing for collection at Polkadot Pictures & Framing's monthly event at Collingham Memorial Hall.

SOME OF THE CAMEOS ON THE COLLINGHAM MURAL

Framed prints of the Collingham mural can be ordered from Polkadot Pictures & Framing, who attends Collingham Memorial Hall every month - see Next Art & Framing Event for details.

 

Each print is individually framed in the customer's choice of frame style and mount.  Polkadot Pictures & Framing has around 250 frame styles and dozens of mount colours to choose from.  

 

All mounts, undermounts and fixings are "acid free" to help keep the picture in the best possible condition. Glass can be anti-reflective, standard or UV-resistant.  The cost is dependent upon the frame style, the type of glass, and whether a single or double mount is chosen.

This example of a Collingham mural print, framed by Polkadot Pictures & Framing, has a sand-coloured inner mount which picks out the colours in the painting.  

 

The tan-coloured wood frame with gold trim is one option out of over 250 available frame styles.

"The mural is a watercolour painting, depicting life in 1918 in the villages of Collingham and Linton.  It is a series of cameos showing occupations, houses, fashions and the games the children played at the time.  The Wetherby News shows the headlines the week World War One came to an end.  Also represented are the twenty-two soldiers who died from the two villages, two hundred and fifty having gone to war."

Farmers used horses to plough the fields until the mid 20th century.
