University of Virginia Lawn

about the watercolor

Russell Bloodworth painted his first view of the University of Virginia Lawn and Rotunda in 1967. A limited edition, it sold out within three years.

The artist graduated from Virginia's School of Architecture in 1968, and was asked to recreate his original as part of a fund raising effort for the Alumni Association in 1997. Great effort was poured into the second watercolor, which helped raise over $12,000 for the University.

An edition of 1,000, this rare view is slated to be a real collector's item, as was the 1967 edition. The print is nearly identical to the original watercolor, both in color and size, and was printed on heavy authentic watercolor grade paper to match the original under the direct supervision of the artist.

This limited and first edition of Russell Bloodworth's view of Thomas Jefferson's Rotunda and Lawn is available for a price of $90, including shipping by UPS. The original watercolor has been faithfully reproduced full size on extremely heavy watercolor paper stock. The image measures 12" x 28" exclusive of a 3.5" white border on all sides with the words "The Lawn" directly below the image.
