Frank Wootton (1912-1998) was an English artist who is best known for his aviation art, which he produced from the 1930s to the 1990s. He was born in London and studied at the Royal Academy of Arts. His early works were mostly landscapes and seascapes, but he soon developed a passion for painting aircraft. Wootton's aviation art depicted planes in action during World War II, as well as other aircraft from different eras. He often used dramatic lighting effects to create a sense of movement and excitement in his work. His paintings are characterized by their attention to detail and accuracy; he would often spend hours researching each plane before beginning a painting, ensuring that all details were correct. In addition to his aviation art, Wootton also painted portraits of famous people such as Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II. He also produced illustrations for books on military history, including The Battle of Britain by Len Deighton and The History of Flight by Charles Harvard Gibbs-Smith. Throughout his career, Wootton received numerous awards for his work including the Order of Merit from the Royal Society of Arts in 1975 and an honorary doctorate from Kingston University in 1996. In 1997 he was made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE). Today Frank Wootton's work can be found in many galleries around the world including Tate Britain in London and The Smithsonian Institution’s National Air & Space Museum in Washington DC among others. His legacy lives on through these collections which continue to inspire new generations with their vivid depictions of flight throughout history
