Each piece captures history from around the world form an exhibition at King's Lynn Arts Centre.

Some of the works by Neil Pittaway, a former course director and lecturer at the College of West Anglia, measure 7ft wide and capture famous architectural sites, cityscapes and historical figures.

Also included are a selection of his First World War paintings.

In another exhibition, Mr Pittaway captured the majestic scenery of Nepal while trekking in the country two weeks before the devastating earthquake hit in April.

He said: 'I enjoy travelling and the exhibition is showing the beauty of the landscape and a sense of moment, and time, and place.
