Rare William Kurlek Painting Found
A rare William Kurelek painting, called 'King of the Castle', showing a boy wearing a Toronto Maple Leaf sweater, defending a hill against other playing boys, was recently found in England. It's discovery can be attributed to the technology of our age, and it began when Shaun Mayberry of Winnipeg's Mayberry Fine Art Gallery, rang in early morning and his English caller, told him of his painting and even sent him a jpeg copy of it. The interesting story of this discovery and where its journey leads can be found if you click on this linking line.
