Harry Horse

04 April, 2008

A selection of wine-themed artwork by Richard Horne, aka Harry Horse, is being made available to internet users by Peebles merchant Villeneuve Wines. "The images were done for us 25 years ago," said director Alister Rae. "He was a friend and a brilliant artist." Horne went on to publish children's books and worked for the Independent and Guardian before his sudden death last year. Artwork which has been used in Villeneuve marketing for decades is now downloadable as wallpaper from Villeneuve's website.
