Discovery of a New World
You should have a copy of this painting…
Mine makes me feel like I can do anything. – Indy
George Murray was a Scottish painter and inventor born in 1875.
He died in 1933 at the age of 58.
His painting, Discovery of a New World, hangs in Wizard Academy’s
Eye of the Storm. It is perhaps his largest and most important work.
The BBC put together a short slide show of some his other paintings, including the names of the museums in which they hang.
1. Give Wizard Academy a Christmas gift of $500 to help prepare the rooms of Spence Manor so that we can have it ready for students in early 2014.
2. Our gift to you will be the image you see above – printed on canvas in
the same size as the original – 31 x 49 inches – rolled up in a mailing tube.
3. Yes, I’ll be in the painting, right where you see me in the boat. – Indy
4. You’ll have to pay a local frame shop to stretch your canvas onto a wooden frame and then the final frame you choose will also be a custom size and that’s not cheap, but when you’re through, you’ll have one of only 50 full-size copies of George Murray’s Discovery of a New World in all the earth. Extremely very cool.
5. Wizard Academy owns the original and there will be no other copies on canvas in the original size. Just 50 in all the world.
6. Sure, there will be countless postcards of the image and it will appear in books and we’ll probably print smaller sizes on art paper and maybe even a 16 x 24 inch size on canvas at some future date, but only 50 alumni will have the 31 x 49 inch full-size bad boy you see at the top of the page.
7. You discovered a whole new world when you came to Wizard Academy.
Put a symbol of that day on your wall. Can you swing a $500 hammer?
