Artist's Description

Helen’ s Tower, in the Clandeboye Estate in County Down, was built in memory of Helen Selina Blackwood, Lady Dufferin, by her son in 1861.

At the beginning of the First World War, many men of the 36th (Ulster) Division trained in Clandeboye Estate before being sent to the war in 1915.

On 1st July 1916, the Ulster Division suffered more than 5,000 casualties in one day, and a copy of Helen’s Tower has been built at the Memorial to those missing in action at Thiepval in France. It is known as the Ulster Tower.

My painting is based on a photograph by Redbubbler Jonny Andrews. Check out his other excellent images.

This is Jonny’s image of Helen’s Tower

and this is the Ulster Tower at Thiepval.

The painting is soft pastels and pastel pencils on Art Spectrum Colourfix, slightly larger than A4. Original available.

And here is the painting as a print

Thank you for reading this little piece of our history.
