What is an Artists Proof?

Out of an entire run of prints, there is often a short run of no more than fifty so that the artist can check that the colours and print quality are satisfactory. These prints are then signed by the artist and each edition number has the letters ‘AP’ after. These runs are highly sought after due to their uniqueness and limited availability.

“Goner 78A” The Dambusters Raid

Oil on canvas, 24 x 36 inches - ORIGINAL SOLD

This painting depicts the fourth attack against the Mohne Dam, led by Sqd. Ldr. H. M. Young, piloting AJ-A. In the background on his starboard side, is Flt. Lt. H. B. Martin, flying A-JP, who is drawing fire by flashing his identification lights and turning on his spotlight altitude indicators. Wing Cmdr. G. P. Gibson’s aircraft is out of sight, engaging enemy fire at the far side of the dam wall. The bomb was observed to make three good bounces and exploded on contact exactly as Barnes Wallace had planned, generating a vast column of water. Although it was not obvious at that instant, this was the attack that succeeded in breaching the dam. However, it was not until the next attack by Flt. D. J. H. Maltby, that it was realised that the dam was crumbling. The code sent out by Young signified; Goner (bomb released), 7 (exploded on contact), 8 (No apparent breach) A (Mohne dam). Youngs’s aircraft was lost with all lives on it’s return journey to Scampton, possibly around 02.58 near Castricum-ann-Zee, north of Ijmuiden.
