A MEETING on the moor between a pair of White Rose stalwarts is aiming to promote God's own county.
Holmfirth-based artist Ashley Jackson and Yorkshire Society chairman Keith Madeley met at the Cow and Calf Rocks on Ilkley Moor in preparation for a new painting project.
Ashley, celebrating his 65th birthday and 50 years of being an artist, is to paint a special limited edition of the famous view.
Mr Jackson said: "I am highly honoured to be a member of the Yorkshire Society, because they do a great job promoting the county and when Keith approached me with this idea I thought it was fantastic. The project is history in the making."
He added: "People have gone from Yorkshire to all corners of the world, but whether they are in Australia or America they still like to have a little piece of home with them.
"The Cow and the Calf on Ilkley Moor is instantly recognisable for Yorkshire folk."
Mr Madeley said: "Ashley is the ideal man to help the Yorkshire Society celebrate it 25th year.
"We are over the moon that Ashley has agreed to help us out.
"His work is known around the world and the funds from his prints will be ploughed back into Yorkshire's community by the society."
There will be 250 prints for sale and the first 50 sold will also include an original sketch as an added bonus.
Prices for members are £400, while non-members can expect to pay £495. The remaining 200 prints will be sold to members for £250 and non-members for £350.
