Beyond the Horizon

Artathon 14 of 47: Beyond the Horizon

Born in Grundisburgh, six miles north-east of Ipswich, Bartholomew Gosnold was one of the prime movers behind the colonisation of Virginia having been granted an exclusive charter by King James I to do so. In 1602 he was vice-admiral on an expedition consisting of three ships (the Susan Constant, Discovery and Godspeed) that sailed to Jamestown.

By York artist Dan Savage, “Beyond the Horizon”, situated on Orwell Quay, was commissioned to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Jamestown, the first English settlement in what is now the USA, and the Suffolk man Gosnold’s part in making it happen.
