1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
- Unit Price
This painting by talented artist Matthew Emeny, captures the architectural splendour of Windsor Castle and St George’s Chapel, now the resting place of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Windsor Castle has been the family home of British Kings and Queens for more than 1000 years; the oldest and largest inhabited Castle in the world.
Wings Over Windsor features aircraft from the ‘Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’ (BBMF) over Windsor Castle, England. Lancaster PA474 (AR-L) leads the flypast and is one of two remaining airworthy Lancaster bombers from WW2. Accompanying the Lancaster are Spitfires P7350 (KL-B) Mk lla and BB910 (SH-f) Mk Vb. All three aircraft are painted in WW2 schemes chosen by the BBMF and in use at the time of the scene's creation.

Matthew Emeny Based in Ipswich, Suffolk, Matthew’s love for painting began in his teenage years when he started painting scenes from around the Suffolk countryside. In 2013 he acquired a collection of black and white postcards featuring WWII aircraft and it inspired him to paint his first military aircraft, bringing colour to one of the old postcard scenes.
The painting revealed a more detailed and realistic approach, and realism quickly became his preferred painting style. Matthew now specialises in military aviation, depicting aircraft found throughout history and today. He has a huge passion for detail and creates compositions which portray subjects accurately and in a way that is highly detailed and visually engaging.
