There are many fine artists who paint aviation history, there are many historians who study aviation history, but there are very few who can combine the two.Mark Postlethwaite is one of those few. His work is a rare combination of flawless technical and historical accuracy, combined with a passion and sensitivity for light and the sheer exhilaration of flight. It’s little wonder that his work is collected by elite collectors and museums around the world.
Just finished this original painting for the forthcoming Osprey book 'Junkers 88 Aces of World War Two', depicting a Junkers 88R-2 of KG40 shooting down a 304 Squadron Wellington over Biscay.
Happy to confirm that I'll be signing books on both days at the Scale Modelworld event at Telford in November this year.
A new Dambuster book, essential for any artist or modeller.
