The Shuttleworth Collection by Ivan Berryman consists of 4 great  signed limited edition art prints, of racing cars, steam engines and aircraft.

In the mid 1990s, I was commissioned by the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden Aerodrome in Bedfordshire to produce a number of small paintings to help commemorate the collection’s 50th anniversary and to celebrate the name of Shuttleworth in engineering excellence.

The centrepiece of my tribute was a painting that we called Shuttleworth Salute depicting the collection’s magnificent Spitfire Vc in ‘Vic’ formation with their Hawker Hind and Gloster Gladiator over Old Warden aerodrome. So pleased were they with the finished painting that it was suggested that the Shuttleworth family be approached to ask permission to ‘lift’ Richard Shuttleworth’s signature from his flight log book and have it printed, as if in his own hand, on each print. To everyone’s delight, permission was granted, citing that Richard would dearly have loved to have signed the prints himself were he alive to do so.

Shuttleworth Salute by Ivan Berryman.

Many associate the name of Shuttleworth only with the superb collection of vintage aircraft that are regularly shown – and flown – throughout the year, but there was a great deal of history before this unique collection was born.

The engineering firm of Clayton and Shuttleworth was founded in Lincoln in 1867 and almost immediately began producing steam engines and steam traction engines of which they built some 10,000 examples. My painting shows a typical Clayton and Shuttleworth steam traction engine about to start work on forestry duties, hauling logs and providing the power to saw them. One such machine was being lovingly restored at Old Warden at the time that I produced my painting.

During the First World War, their factories became aircraft works, building Sopwith Triplanes and, a little later, Sopwith Camels. This latter aircraft re-acquainted me with the name of Shuttleworth in 2008 when I painted the Red Baron’s Last Combat and placed Captain Roy Brown’s Sopwith Camel B7270 right in the foreground of the scene over the Somme River, this aircraft having been built at the Shuttleworth works before being issued to 209 Squadron for service in France.

It was between the wars that the young Richard Shuttleworth began to form what is now the collection that is so admired all over the world. Only he had the foresight to preserve machines that were quickly being superseded and becoming obsolete. He was a man obsessed speed and built himself an enviable reputation as a racing driver, frequently taking part in events at Brooklands as well as many overseas events. He frequently practised his driving skills by thrashing has Alfa Romeo racing car around the perimeter tracks of the family estate in Bedfordshire – much to the chagrin of the many groundsmen and animals that shared the trackways. My painting shows Richard in the British racing green Alfa at Donnington.

 

Bravo Shuttleworth by Ivan Berryman.

In 1928, Richard purchased the Panhard Levassor motor car that still runs regularly today - even though it was almost thirty years old when he bought it!

This unique car regularly took part in the London to Brighton rally and it is at the start of this event that I chose to depict this historic vehicle for it was this very machine that sparked the entire collection that we see today. Visitors to Old Warden flying days will enjoy seeing this landmark vehicle trundling along the flight line as if 100 years had barely passed.

For Richard, sadly, his time was short. At the outbreak of World War Two he joined the RAF as a service pilot, but lost his life in a flying accident whilst piloting a Fairey Battle in 1940. But his legacy, thankfully, lived on due to the foresight of his mother, Mrs Dorothy Shuttleworth OBE, who founded the Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth Rememberence Trust.

During the war, the collection was put into storage and the airfield at Old Warden pressed into service as a maintenance facility. In many ways, it is still such today, as well as being a fine museum and education centre.

My association with this wonderful collection of aircraft, vehicles and machinery was brief, but memorable, and I really must thank everyone at Old Warden that offered me support, advice and a warm welcome to support my endeavours as an artist. I have many times visited this wonderful site of aviation heritage and have never been disappointed.

Shuttleworth Salute by Ivan Berryman.

To commemorate Shuttleworths Golden Jubilee in 1994. A Spitfire leads a Hawker Hind and a Gloster Gladiator in formation over Old Warden. The Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden aerodrome is recognised as one of the finest private collections of vintage aircraft in the world. Many of the exhibits have direct connections with the all too short but lively career of Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth himself, and all the aircraft are flown regularly - from the frail and endearing Bristol Boxkite to what is regarded as the most genuine Spitfire flying today. Here, this Spitfire leads a Vic-3 formation of the Collections Hawker Hind and Gloster Gladiator over Old Warden during a typical flying display to Commemorate Shuttleworths Golden Jubilee in 1994.
