Icon of Peter Lee.
Peter Lee (1864–1935) was a miner's leader, county councillor and Methodist local preacher. He was born in Trimdon Grange, County Durham (incidentally also where I was born). He started working in a colliery at the age of ten and became Chairman of England's first Labour county council at Durham in 1919. He is buried at Wheatley Hill Cemetery, County Durham. (as are my paternal grandparents and great grandparents.)
The modern saints series includes people from all over the world who have left us wonderful examples of faith and witness.
Peter Lee is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished.
This is one of a series of modern saints.
The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
