Frank Wootton was a renowned aviation artist. This stunning picture painted in gouache on board depicts the De Havilland Albatross taking off in 1957 on its flight to obtain the 20 year airworthiness certificate. This picture was painted for the De Havilland Aircraft Co Ltd. circa 1957 and represents a top quality example of Wootton’s aeronautical work. De Havilland label verso. Signed lower left Wootton.
With apologies for glass reflections on image - painting is superb.
