Frank Wootton original painting – Vickers Wellington Attack

Glorious original [tempera] gouache and watercolour on board depicting the attack on German warships at Brunsbuttel by Vickers Wellington Is of nine and 149 squadrons on 4th. September 1939. The aircraft in the foreground carries the pre- war code letters of “KA”.

 This painting was specially commissioned by Vickers Armstrong-Armstrong and black and white reproductions were used as advertisements in aviation journals of the period.

 It was rescued by famous aviation authority and writer, Philip Moyes,  from their offices in Broadway, Westminster when the publicity department was having a final clear out shortly before the building was demolished in the 1950 s to make way for the new edifice of Scotland Yard, and it comes from his estate. There is a typed note from Moyes dated 25 March 1998 that comes with the painting, giving the above details and more, presumably when he gave it to another family member.

  15.5 “ x  12.5” image size. Freshly mounted, framed and glazed.

 Price : ££
