Circa 1982 by Barrie A. F. Clark,

'Spitfire' depicts the Spitfire amidst bomb-blasted smoke. The artwork symbolizes victory against overwhelming odds. The Spitfire, a formidable fighter piloted by England's Royal Air Force during World War II's Battle of Britain, played a crucial role in the defeat of Hitler's forces. Although the exact origin of the depicted aircraft is uncertain,

In the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire gained significant public recognition as the face of the RAF fighter, despite the Hawker Hurricane carrying a larger burden against the Luftwaffe. However, the Spitfire units boasted a lower attrition rate and a higher victory-to-loss ratio compared to those flying Hurricanes.

The Spitfire served as the backbone of the RAF Fighter Command, showcasing its prowess in various theaters of war, including Europe, the Mediterranean, the Pacific, and South-East Asia. Adored by its pilots, this versatile aircraft took on multiple roles such as interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter-bomber, carrier-based fighter, and trainer. Its design allowed for adaptation, accommodating increasingly powerful engines such as the Rolls-Royce Merlin and later the Rolls-Royce Griffon, generating up to 2,035 Horse Power.

About the artist

Barrie Clark, the artist, was born on September 18, 1943, in Hampshire, and spent his early years in the New Forest. His childhood was filled with memories of steam locomotives and model airplanes, thanks to his father's passion for them and his experience as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps. Although Barrie initially dreamed of joining the RAF as a pilot, his parents convinced him to pursue a career in art. He began his full-time art education at Dover and Folkestone Schools of Art in 1958. In 1967, he secured a job designing and constructing prototype toys, while simultaneously creating and selling his artwork. During this period, he also worked as a signalman on the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway, and from 1968 to 1970, he operated the Winston Churchill engine. Given his deep connection to engines and exceptional painting skills, it was unsurprising when Mr. Clark transitioned to full-time painting in 1970, successfully selling his first collection of artwork within two weeks. Today, he explores various subjects in his paintings, although he is particularly well known for his magnificent aircraft images, with the "Spitfire" being his most famous creation. Despite his flourishing international career, Barrie Clark still manages to find time for playing the blues guitar and caring for six cats.
