The Clock Tower and Granville Hotel, Waterford City - 768
A colourful print of an acrylic painting of a view of the Clock Tower and Fountain landmark that sits on Meagher's Quay by the River Suir, Waterford. Originally known as the Fountain Clock, it was erected in 1863 when Waterford had the distinction of being Ireland's most active port, trading with hundreds of others around the globe. The fountain troughs on each side were used to water the horses that worked at the dockside.
The Granville Hotel is one of the oldest in the country, dating back to the early 18th century and was owned by a Thomas Meagher whose son Thomas Francis Meagher was a Brigadier General during the American Civil War and was later elected Governor of Montana. It was he who created the Irish Tricolour flag (modelled on the French tricolour), which was first hoisted aloft in Waterford City in 1848.
This painting is available as a Limited Edition run of 200 prints using Epson Archival inks on supreme quality Hahnemuhle Traditional Fine Art paper. See dropdown menu above to see size, price and framing options.
If you are thinking of purchasing one of Chris’ pieces, just do it! They are even more fabulous in real life. Absolutely outstanding. I purchased a print as an engagement gift for a friend and it was so beautiful I had to purchase a different one for my new home. On both purchases the prints arrived within a few days and were well packaged. Chris kept me informed when he posted them. Can’t wait to hang it once I move into the new house. Highly recommend
Bought the clock tower and the Granville Hotel print. Really does capture both landmarks perfectly. Absolutely stunning print bought as a gift to whom Waterford city and in particular the Granville means so much.
