Graham Turner unveiled his major new oil painting of the Battle of Barnet at an exhibition of his work at the Barnet Medieval Festival in 2019.

The painting transports you back to 1471, into the midst of a battle that had such a huge bearing on England's future, put Edward IV back on the throne and saw the defeat and death of his one-time great ally, the earl of Warwick - the 'Kingmaker' - one of history's most charismatic characters.

The Battle of Barnet - print from a painting by Graham Turner

At the recent Guild of Aviation Artists annual Aviation Painting of the Year exhibition, held at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London, Graham Turner once again scooped the Cross and Cockade award for the best painting of a First World War subject.

His painting 'Photo-shoot' shows a BE2e flying over the Western Front on a photo-reconnaissance mission, the pilot operating the lever that would change the glass negative plates in the externally mounted camera, while the observer struggles to aim his Lewis gun.

This follows previous successes, including being awarded the Wilkinsons Sword Poignard for the best work in oils at the 2017 exhibition for his widely acclaimed painting 'Letter from Home', and winning the Cross and Cockade award last year for 'Dawn of the Machines'.

Celebrating a unique pictorial record of over half a century of Motor Racing

Michael Turner published his first set of Studio 88 motor sport Christmas cards back in 1963, and has produced a new set every year since, capturing the highlights of that year's season and creating a unique pictorial record of over half a century of motor racing with almost three hundred paintings, recording the spectacle, the drama and excitement of the sport that has inspired him through so many different eras.

Michael was tempted to end this amazing run with the 50th set of cards in 2012, but decided he wasn't quite ready to finish something that has been part of his life for so long. However, we have now reached the point where several factors, including his own busy schedule, mean that he has regretfully decided that the time to finish is now upon us, so we are sorry to announce that the 2016 set of cards will have been the last, and there will not be a new set of cards for 2017.

The cards have been collected for Michael's art as much as for use as cards, and are prized by collectors of these significant works - some of whom have been returning to buy the latest set annually since the very earliest years.

We're celebrating this amazing collection of motor racing art by showing all of the paintings here on the Studio 88 website. Some of the cards are still available, including not just those from more recent years but also some of the earlier examples - CLICK HERE to see images and details of all the cards, including ordering information for those we have available. Larger prints of some of these paintings are also available.

Grand Prix Christmas cards
Michael Turner has travelled the globe to follow and paint the sport he loves since the 1950s. This passion and first-hand experience sets his work apart; the drama and excitement of racing cars driven on the limit, the atmosphere, the settings, all captured in his evocative paintings.


Although he has decided to discontinue the annual set of cards, Michael was keen to create at least one painting to mark the 2017 Formula 1 season, and the result is this typically exciting image of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. This new painting is now available as a high quality artist signed giclée print, in a choice of sizes - CLICK HERE FOR FULL DETAILS

THE BATTLE OF AGINCOURT - Painting now at the Royal Armouries

Graham Turner's original painting of Henry V at the Battle of Agincourt is now part of the Royal Armouries collection and on display at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.

The large oil on canvas was painted to mark the 600th Anniversary of Agincourt, a battle that pitted Henry V's small and exhausted army against the massed ranks of the French nobility, made icons of Henry V and the English longbowman, and became part of English national identity.

Henry V is in the thick of the fighting, surrounded by his bodyguard and with his banners flying above him, as they desperately fight off the French knights and men at arms who have struggled through the mud and barrage of English arrows to reach their antagonists.

Following the success of Graham Turner's exhibition at the National Civil War Centre in Newark, the Centre have purchased the entire collection of 26 works that were on display.

In their Facebook post the Civil War Centre said 'Graham is the UK's top illustrator of this period and visitors can look forward to seeing a selection rotated around the galleries and in the Wolfson Research Room, which opens next month. "The paintings are a great asset - very accessible and also historically accurate," enthused head curator Glyn Hughes. "They also cover all phases of the British Civil Wars - that's important because the conflict spread across three kingdoms and we want to tell the complete story."'
