July 14, 2009 on 11:21 am | In New Releases, Portraiture, Rolf Harris, Sport | No Comments

Well not quite but Rolf did manage to unveil a new piece of work this year at the event entitled: ‘Wimbledon Champions’ and which is now available to own as a limited edition print.

On the 15th June, a few days before the tournament, Rolf unveiled the piece himself in the presence of Martina Navratilova and Bjorn Borg, players featured in the painting and Britain’s much loved former No.1 Tim Henman.

In this new work, Rolf pays tribute to 10 of the greatest Wimbledon Champions: Bjorn Borg, Steffi Graf, Billie-Jean King, Rod Laver, Suzanne Lenglen, John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Pete Sampras and Venus Williams & of course the man who would go on to win: Roger Federer.

Again Rolf shows his versatility as an artist, showing he is just as talented with figurative portraits as any other subject matter!
