"Vinland - Viking America Lake Ontario" by Leon Goodman


"Vinland - Viking America Lake Ontario" by Leon Goodman

£3,450.00

new addition

  STUNNING NEW ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS "Vinland - Viking America" (Part II- Lake Ontario) ............. Another fine work by Leon capturing the intrepid Vinland Vikings who travelled the length of the Saint Lawrence river across Lake Ontario and southwards through present day New York State! In all the main historical sources it is documented grapes were found in Vinland (hence the name Wine land) The Vinland Viking explorers then must have ventured to more southern areas in the United States finding both wild vines and nut trees. Finds from Viking settlements in L'Anse Aux meadows (Newfoundland) have consistently found butternuts backing this. Also in the sagas the Norse were cutting down vinviðir (wine wood) which refers to the vines of Vitis riparia a species of wild grapes that grows on trees. As the Vikings were searching for lumber, a material that was needed in Greenland, they found trees covered with vitis riparia in these more southern areas of America!!

Although this proved conclusively the Viking's pre-Colombian discovery of North America, whether this exact site is the Vinland of the Norse accounts is still a subject of debate.The main source of information about the Viking voyages to Vinland can be derived from two Icelandic sagas, The Saga of Eric the Red and the Saga of the Greenlanders.

 Leon Goodman has been a professional artist for the majority of his working life. His work has been sold at The Omell Gallery, Ascot, as well as Christies, the fine art auction house in London. Many of his works have sold for thousands of pounds to the U.S.A. Since seeing his work, Risborough Art Gallery have made him a regularly featured artist. Leon’s philosophy is that it is not the delineation of the subject which is important, but its fragmentation. He believes a strictly photographic image does not allow the viewer to participate in the painting. If the image is fragmented, the viewer can imagine for himself the missing parts and involve himself in the creation of the whole image. The viewer has seen his own interpretation of the fragmented images; the next viewer may see something different.
