Paintings of WW1 aerial battles

A glimpse of World War One in Italy at the Estorick Collection (in north London) - the exhibition has just closed but was a great introduction to the paintings of Sydney Carline in particular. Carline (1888-1929) based his drawings and paintings of aerial battles on his own experience as a fighter pilot. Later he was engaged by the government as a war artist.
