  • Peter Howson-signed prints of Brother Walfrid art in Celtic stores

    Peter Howson-signed prints of Brother Walfrid art in Celtic stores

  • CELTIC FC and Celtic FC Foundation are delighted to announce a partnership with The 9 Muses, the arts group behind internationally-acclaimed Scottish artist Peter Howson’s famous painting ‘Brother Walfrid’.  

    In 2014, Peter Howson’s painting of Walfrid was unveiled, and is displayed in St Mary’s in the Calton, where Brother Walfrid founded Celtic, on November 6, 1887.

    To raise further awareness of the life of the club’s founding father, The 9 Muses have produced 1,888 premium boxed sets, which include an A3 museum-quality Peter-Howson-signed print of his painting, and a one-hour documentary on the life of Walfrid, entitled ‘The Founder’.

    A total of 30 per cent of the proceeds of each boxed set currently go towards the Renovation Fund of St Mary’s.

    And, to make an even more impactful contribution to charity this Christmas, The 9 Muses have very generously opted to distribute an additional 10% of all proceeds to the club’s charitable arm, Celtic FC Foundation. 

    The prints, which offer a stunning reproduction of Howson’s painting, will be available for the first time in the Celtic Superstore and Argyle Street store, and will be available soon at www.celticsuperstore.co.uk

    Emma O’Neil, who owns and manages The 9 Muses, said: “The Peter Howson Brother Walfrid project has been one of the most important things I’ve done in my lifetime and The 9 Muses have immense passion for Brother Walfrid and everything he achieved personally. He is my biggest inspiration.

    “We have designed this product always with Walfrid’s ethos in mind which is why partnering with Celtic FC and Celtic FC Foundation plus having them endorse and now sell the boxed set brings a whole new level of pride to the project. 

    “Along with Celtic’s passion for bringing people together through amazing charitable work and through football, we hope this image will make Brother Walfrid’s spirit truly immortal and his legacy will live on with it forever.”

    Tony Hamilton, Chief Executive of Celtic FC Foundation, said: “Sincere thanks to The 9 Muses for making a contribution to the work of Celtic FC Foundation.

    “The significance of Brother Walfrid and the work he did in Glasgow and London is hugely important to us, and we are delighted to be associated with this project.”
