Graham Bosworth

Graham was born in Coventry in 1944 in the heart of the motor industry and grew up with a passionate interest in the motor car and motor sport. He clearly remembers the sight and sound of C and D Type Jaguars being road-tested past his childhood home and has vivid memories of first visits to Silverstone in the mid fifties. After leaving school Graham trained as a Technical Illustrator at the Coventry College of Art then joined one of the city's leading illustration and design studios. He was engaged in all forms of line and airbrush exploded and cutaway drawings and worked on a varied number of contracts including motor cars and commercial vehicles, aircraft and machine tools. After nine years, he went into partnership and formed Baron-Bosworth Publications, an art and design studio. The studio secured contracts from all areas of industry including power generation, motor vehicles, machine tools, hydraulic equipment through to furniture, industrial compressors and boat building. Graham then worked as a freelance artist, illustrator and graphic designer and in recent years has concentrated on painting. He likes to work in both oils and water colour/gouache and pays much attention to technical detail in his paintings. His work has been exhibited at the Gibson Moore Gallery, Silverstone Classic, Goodwood Festival of Speed, the International Historic Motorsport Show at Stoneleigh, the Historic Car Art Gallery, the Coventry Transport Museum, the British Motor Industry Heritage Centre, Gaydon as well as many Guild of Motoring Artists exhibitions.

The Battle of Barnet was fought in a heavy mist, on Easter Sunday 14th April 1471. Due to a misalignment of the opposing armies, all became confusion. The centre of the battle (as depicted here) was fought at close quarters, a mass of struggling knights and men at arms with comrade fighting comrade, their vision of the battle obscured by mist. The Yorkists under the leadership of King Edward IV triumphed, leaving the Lancastrians with hopes dashed. Their champion and leader, the great Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick The King Maker lay dead, cut down while struggling to regain his charger. In the painting Edward IV charges toward the banner of Henry Holland, Duke of Exeter, while in the foreground soldiers of the Houses of York and Lancaster hack and slash at each other in terrified butchery.

 Last stand of the 24th South Wales Borderers at Isandhlwana during the Zulu War. The battle of Isandhlwana, a Zulu victory over the British forces on 22nd January 1879 about 100km north of Durban. Lord Chelmsford led a column of forces to seek out the Zulu army camped at Isandhlwana, while patrols searched the district. After receiving a report, Chelmsford set forth at half strength, leaving six companies of the 24th Regiment, two guns, some Colonial Volunteers and a native contingent (in all about 1,800 troops) at the camp. Later that morning an advanced post warned of an approaching Zulu army. Shortly after this, thousands of Zulus were found hidden in a ravine by a mounted patrol but as the patrol set off to warn the camp, the Zulus followed. At the orders of the Camp Commander, troops spread out around the perimeter of the camp, but the Zulu army broke through their defences. The native contingent who fled during the attack were hunted down and killed. The remaining troops of the 24th Regiment, 534 soldiers and 21 officers, were killed where they fought. The Zulus left no one alive, taking no prisoners and leaving no wounded or missing. About 300 Africans and 50 Europeans escaped the attack. Consequently, the invasion of Zulu country was delayed while reinforcements arrived from Britain.
