  • Mervyn Prior -- Artist and Mountaineer??

    This poorly-treated watercolor was hidden behind another painting, and just sort of aroused my curiosity. It has been down a loooong road, as evidenced by its tattered edges. Harbor scene, Durban, no date. The only reference I can find to a Mervyn Prior as an artist was a single auction site entry referring to a South African war vet with this name who had a painting of a WWII airplane auctioned (no photograph of painting or signature). The other references to a Mervyn Prior from South Africa are to a record-setting mountaineer who recorded a number of first climbs on several imposing peaks around the world. Wondering if they are the same individual. I've attached photos of painting, signature and info on back. Any thoughts/ideas/conjectures welcome.
