also with a photograph of
BA Concorde on approach to Heathrow over London
Capt Christopher Orlebar signing the prints
Some words from the Artist:
"When I was asked to produce a painting to commemorate
Concorde's imminent retirement, my reaction was one of excitement
and apprehension. Excitement because Concorde is a truly
beautiful aircraft and an icon of the modern world; and
apprehension because it is a real artist's challenge to
do justice to the aircraft's sleek simple lines.
Heathrow is Concorde's home and therefore
a view of the aircraft over London on its final approach
to the World's busiest airport seemed appropriate. Needless
to say, I spent a huge amount of time getting the city accurate,
as a number of landmarks are visible.Though
not a street by street rendition of the city, I hope that
people can pick out the Millennium Bridge, the Natwest Tower,
Tower Bridge and beyond that, the hazy outline of Canary
Wharf. In contrast to the city, Concorde's lines are simple
and uncluttered by detail-the three-quarter viewpoint showing
the jet off to the best advantage.It is sad to know that
one of the greatest aircraft in aviation history will soon
no longer be flying. It is a true example of art and science
working together to produce a masterpiece"
