Beachy Head is featured in the Best of British exhibition in London
A painting of a Sussex landmark is set to form part of an art exhibition celebrating the best of being British.
Beachy Head near Eastbourne was included in an exhibition by Francis Salvesen entitled The Joys Of Being British.
The artist wanted to create a contrast between the natural beauty of the area and its “huge history”.
Francis, a member of the Royal Society of Arts, said: “I wanted to capture the beauty of Beachy Head and the height and danger above the clouds.
“It is an extraordinary and special sight to see the clouds below the cliffs and through them the sea crashing against the rocks.”
Beachy Head is over 530 feet tall and offers stunning views across the English Channel.
But the cliff is also a frequent site for suicides, with regular patrols conducted by local chaplaincy teams.
The Joys Of Being British exhibition will feature a series of paintings of typically British subjects, including an NHS nurse playing chestnuts and rolling cheese.
Other paintings in the collection include Brian Blessed in William Shakespeare’s King Lear.
The Joys Of Being British exhibition runs from March 13th to 18th at The Mall Galleries in London.
