Artwork of the Day – Sir Thomas Beecham


Liverpool artwork of the day – Tuesday June 12 2007. Sir Thomas Beecham by Unknown at St. Helens World Of Glass until July 1 2007

I’m afraid I don’t know who drew this portrait, it is signed but its not clear. I’m going to St Helens today to be one of the judges for the St Helens Open Art Competition so if I have time (unlikely) I’ll pop in to the World of Glass and have a look.

From Pills to Lollipops: the life and music of Sir Thomas Beecham

From his early life in St. Helens, Beechams Pharmaceutical, and his first concert in St. Helens, which launched his career as a conductor, to his later concerts and recording, this exhibition will pay homage to his many achievements and brilliant career.
