I don’t recall seeing this one in here. End of an Era.

I have never seen this Wootton before either. Its a beauty! thumbsup

Who’s the signatory and was it also signed by Wootton? Is this in your collection?

The print is sign by both Wootton and Norbert Hannig of JG54/JG7/JV44.( I highly recommend his war-time chronicles).

Its print #12/100 so I’d have to say there’s only another 99 around. cool1

The JG7 & JV44 patches are only about 4″ tall so you can see it isn’t a very large print. I had a narrow wall in my office between a closet door and the corner of the room and this print fills the spot perfectly.

I stumbled across this print on the Vector Fine Art site.  It was published back in 2003 and signed by Me-262 pilot Norbert Hannig.  Looks like they’ve got a few for around $100 – not bad!  Here are the details on it:

END OF AN ERA Innsbruck –Austria May 1945 By Frank Wootton

With the splender of an Alpine backdrop the allies discovered Me 262’s hastily abandoned at the Wars end.
This stunning print is signed by Leutnant Norbert Hannig who first flew with JG54 on the Eastern front and at the wars end he was flying the legendary Me 262’s with JG7 and JV44. 
His final victory tally was 42 aircraft destroyed.

Hi Fuzzy….nice to see you are still here !

I bought one of these from Vector some time ago. I was surprised to see it, as I have only ever seen one for sale in the last 10 years and that was on Ebay (I missed out on it !)

But I was dissappointed with it, so much so that I quickly sold it on. The print has what I can only describe as an overall green haziness to the overall colour. I mean it was just too strong ! I thought perhaps there had been a problem with the print run, but as I’ve never seen the original I cannot really say. But it just looked odd to me. Shame as its a great image otherwise.

Yepper, there’s definitely a lot of green. The Me262’s are green on green grass, the mountains fade into green, the pine trees are various shades of green and I wouldn’t of been surprised had ole Frank painted the mountain tops and the sky green also as green paint was obviously on sale at one time. artist And when I framed mine I embraced the greenness as the outer matting is a very dark green to match the darkest of the pines.

Did I ever mention that green is my favorite color?

Here’s to all things green, be they corroded copper pennies or mythical little men of Irish origin. beercheers

‘Sigh of a Merlin’

Signed by Alex Henshaw, Spitfire test pilot.

This appears to be a duotone or a tritone print. Overall the image is a charcoal gray with the wing, tail, roundels and the helmet having brownish highlights and there also seems to be some blue highlights around the cockpit. I haven’t been nosy enough yet to get out my loupe and start looking.

My earlier post was lost during the move to the new web server. doh

Could you please check and see when this print was published, and by whom?

I haven’t found much of anything on this print. As I posted last time, there’s no date or printer/publisher to be found on the print. Other than 2 or 3 places with this print for sale, nothing. I hit up a couple of poster websites thinking maybe it might be considered a poster but other than a series of BOAC and equestrian stuff that Frank had done, nothing. Then again posters aren’t really printed on about a 120 or 140# stock.

artist And… once you dig into stuff that Frank did, aviation related is just the tip of his iceberg.

Just got this one on the cheap. April Morning, France, 1918. This literally depicting the meeting that rolled the Royal Flying Corp and the Royal Naval Air Service together and created the RAF.
