Robert Burke

A native of the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the Southeast United States, Robert has a strong connection to the sea and the maritime history that goes with it. His family goes a long way back with origins in England, his grandfather being a particularly able sailor of his own craft as well as a master shipwright. Robert has been able to draw upon his family background and his life by the sea with an almost scholarly approach to all his pieces, aiming for the most exacting historical accuracy while never losing sight of bringing the viewer into the drama of the event. Robert received his formal art school training and a degree from East Carolina University School of Art and divides his professional endeavours between working an art director for a leading East Coast ad agency and devoting himself to building his portfolio of maritime art. His work has been published and hangs in galleries as well as private collections.

Although all the aircraft were lost and no significant damage was done to the German fleet, all the pilots were decorated for their bravery and Lt-Cdr Esmonde received the first Fleet Air Arm VC to be awarded, albeit posthumously.  The painting depicts the first wave of Swordfish attacking the Scharnhorst with Gneisenau taking avoiding action in the distance.  A German torpedo boat has turned to confront the attacking aircraft.

21st October 1805. As Admiral Nelsons flagship leads the British fleet towards the Franco-Spanish line, Captain Harveys Temeraire tries to pass the Victory in order to be the first to break the enemy column. Harvey was discouraged with a customry rebuke from Nelson and duly fell into line behind the flagship. The enemy can be seen spread along the horizon whilst, to the right in the distance, the leading ships of Admiral Collingwoods fleet can be seen spearheading a separate assault to the south. In the light airs preceding the battle, much sail was needed to drive the British ships towards the enemy line. HMS Victory, nearest, has royals and stunsails set and is making good way, her furniture boats strung behind in readiness for battle. On her poop deck, officers prepare to run up a signal.

Captain Harveys HMS Temeraire tries to pass HMS Victory at the beginning of the Battle of Trafalgar by Ivan Berryman.
