Dave Pether: Rape of the Fair Country

This is the original cover painting for the 3rd novel in the "Mortymer Saga" a series of novels by Alexander Cordell that portray the turbulent history of early industrial Wales. Pether was commissioned to produce several cover illustrations for novels by Cordell by Piatkus and Penguin/Sphere Books in the late 80s to early 90s and all of them are wonderful examples of Pether's skill in depicting intriguing characters set against wonderful backgrounds - this edition was published by Time Warner, 1991 - cover shown for reference (see also my listings for "Song of the Earth", "Race of the Tiger", "Beloved Exile", "Requiem for a Patriot", Sinews of Love," "Tunnel Tigers" and Dreams of Fair Women")   Painted in gouache and acrylic on illustration board, 12.75" x 17.75"  and comes with a label attesting to its authenticity signed by Pether's widow, mounted to the back.
