Frank Wootton is a famous artist from the time period and his works are widely collected and framed all over the world. He was best known for his aircraft illustrations, however, Frank Wootton is in some people’s opinion the best UK motoring artist, even greater than Gordon Crosby. In the 1930’s he was a commercial artist working on motor manufacturers’ sales brochures. After the war he worked as a commercial artist for several studios continuing the aviation, but increasingly motoring art. Motoring paintings were used by car manufacturers as well as Country Life for some of their front covers. During this time he also worked for The Motor on assignments covering such events as Le Mans and the Monte Carlo Rally. But he was also an extraordinary landscape and equestrian artist. His love of horses was unparalleled and he became vice-President of the Society of Equestrian Artists.
