RICHARD GRENVILLE

RICHARD GRENVILLE

Richard was born in Hove Sussex and at the age of just six months he started his long association with ships. First he crossed the Atlantic by Liner, moved from the USA to Barbados and onto Singapore where he began sailing at a very early age. When he was 11 years old the family took the slow route by cargo ship back to the UK. Whilst growing up he spent many happy hours on the water in the varied boats his father owned and as a family they spent nearly all their summer holidays yachting. An activity he still enjoys today.

A graduate of Brighton College of Art and Design he left with a First (1.1) degree. After spending over a decade in Design and Architecture he became a full time artist in 1989. Mostly working for Architectural, Aviation and Military clients he has also done much work in the off shore Oil and Gas Exploration sector. He has had many maritime painting commissions including book illustration and exhibited several times with the Royal Society of Marine Artists in London.

American Clipper - Flying Cloud by Robert Taylor Giclee Sudio Proof
- THE MARITIME GICLÉE STUDIO PROOFS -

Internationally famous for his paintings of aircraft and acknowledged as the world’s foremost Aviation Artist, Robert Taylor has also been at the forefront of maritime subjects throughout his career.

For two glorious decades in the mid-nineteenth century, the world’s great sea trading routes were dominated by the magnificent ‘Yankee Clippers’.

And none were finer or more famous than the American clipper Flying Cloud, legendary for her world beating speed records, some of which stood for 100 years, and for having a female Navigator - unheard of in 1854!

Signed by Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor is so impressed with the result of the Giclee on Canvas that he had this to say "These Giclée proofs are so impressive, they are as close to my original painting in colour and texture as it is possible to achieve in reproduced format".

Epoch-making events that influence the entire world are even more uncommon. The events that took place in the space of less than two hours on the morning of December 7, 1941 were of such defining importance, their memory is now deeply embedded into the history of the Twentieth Century.
