BARRIE A.F. CLARK, BRITISH (BORN 1943)
"SUPER MARINE SPITFIRE"
Oil painting of a Supermarine Spitfire in flight bearing the markings "SN-M" denoting No. 243 Squadron RAF. Artist's signature "Barrie A.F. Clark" in bottom left. Framed.

A fine oil painting from the brush of one of the best post-war painters of World War II aircraft, whose images adorn posters world wide. This particular image of the Spitfire in flight was one he revisited on several occasions, changing the form of the clouds and the intensity of the light. Reformed from a World War I squadron, No.243 Squadron was employed as a fighter squadron for the defense of Singapore and Malaya from March, 1941. The squadron's aging Brewster Buffalos were shot out of the sky by superior Japanese planes, forcing the unit's disbandment in January, 1942. Five months later, No. 243 was reactivated in England and upgraded to the Supermarine Spitfire, like the example depicted in this oil painting.
