First World War Paintings by Graham TurnerFirst World War Original Paintings by Graham Turner

While Graham Turner is careful to ensure that Studio 88's prints are of a very high quality, nothing can compare with owning an original, whether it's a large scale oil on canvas, a smaller gouache painting, or a pencil drawing.

These are one-offs, painstakingly researched and created over many days, weeks or months.

Graham Turner has been painting professionally for over thirty years, building a worldwide reputation for his historical paintings which bring to life the people and events of our past. His interest in the First World War was sparked while working on a commission for the Royal Mail:

" When I was researching the First World War figure for the set of army uniforms stamps I painted for the Royal Mail a few years ago, I came across a photo of a column of British cavalry crossing a trench, and one of the horses so reminded me of my own horse Magic that I vowed that I would one day paint something to try to capture the relationship between man and horse in such extreme circumstances...."

That painting was "Steady Boy" which was exhibited at the 2011 Guild of Aviation Artists annual exhibition in London, where it sold straight away and won the Roy Nockolds Trophy, voted for by the public. He has exhibited with the Guild every year since, winning more awards for his First World War aviation paintings, and he has now been elected a full member.

His work is inspired by the accounts left to us by ordinary people who found themselves caught up in this most horrific conflict, and he hopes the viewer can relate to their experiences through his paintings, whether it be the brave, pioneering airmen taking to the skies in their frail craft, the infantry trying to survive in the mud and horrors of the trenches, or the cavalry with horses to take care of in such a hostile environment.
