Original First World War Paintings by Graham TurnerOriginal First World War 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.

Below are all Graham Turner's currently available paintings of First World War subjects - click on the image or title for full details.
