Champagne Days - D.H Gypsy Moth
Aviation Art Painting Print De Havilland Gypsy Moth by Aircraft Artist Charles J. Thompson GAvA
Art is as much about what one cannot see as what one can. Here a Gypsy Moth provides the background for a story as a pair of champagne glasses sit on the lower wing and we are left to wonder where the occupants are and what they are doing. Thompson's style also evokes the nature of the period perfectly with the painting having a wonderful relaxed nature to it, as the Moth just awaits its occupants to jump in and fly off somewhere else.
