Nativity by Gavin Alston, circa 1960

Pen and Ink drawing of the Nativity by Gavin Alston c. 1959-60


This large scale Nativity scene, measuring 84" x18", was conceived as a background to the hymn 'O Come all ye Faithful' screened on STV c. 1960 (during a 'Songs of Praise' style programme). The panoramic style meant that the camera could pan along the length of drawing as the carol was being sung. Gavin did occasional illustrational work for Scottish Television.
