Own Your Own Nasmith – Chalk-Farm Gallery Selling Orignals and Prints

by Sep 25, 2000Other News

It seems that Chalk-Farm Gallery has started to sell some orignal Gouache Paintings by Ted Nasmith. Over the last year this gallery has been the home of several exhibits of Nasmith’s work. It is great to see that people will now have the opportunity to purchase some of his works.

Prices for the orignals range from £155 for a picture of Treebeard with the Hobbits to £2425 for a picture of Galadriel. The prices for the prints range from £85 to £145.

I wish I had some extra money laying around so that further decorate my house with these great pieces of artwork.

About Ted Nasmith

Ted Nasmith lives and works in Canada.

His love of Tolkien inspired him to create illustrations from the first reading of The Lord of the Rings at age fifteen. He was soon embarking on ambitious, detailed interpretations of scene after scene from the book, while accumulating a body of sketches. The first major piece was entitled ‘The unexpected party'(1972), rendered in tempera. It featured Gandalf, Bilbo and the dwarves examining the the ancient map of Erebor.

Photographs of this and one or two other early works were shown to JRR Tolkien himself and earned a favourable response. With encouragement, he continued to turn out Tolkien illustrations in his own time for over a decade, some of which were to take many months to finish. In time his work was brought to the attention of George Allen Unwin Ltd. and was soon being published in the Tolkien calendars (1987, 1988, 1990, 1992, and 1996).
