Description
A leading aviation and motoring artist in oil, acrylic, gouache and watercolour, working in both his native Britain and the United States. Born in North London, as a child he regularly sketched the planes he saw, including the Nazi warplanes over London at the height of the blitz. He left school at sixteen and worked for a commercial artist whilst attending night school. This tuition and support, coupled with his own inherent abilities, enabled him to gain a strong understanding of how to paint almost any subject. In the 1950s Douglas Ettridge became a prominent member of the newly formed Society of Aviation artists, whose members held an annual show at the Guildhall, London. he was in august company as other early members included Gerald Coulson, Terence Cuneo, Roy Nockolds, David Shepherd, Norman Wilkinson and Frank Wootton. He was a member of the London sketch club and exhibited also with the Royal Society of marine artists. By the late 1950s he had moved to the United States, and he achieved considerable success as a painter of aeroplanes, balloons, ships and racing cars in that country. He had an annual exhibition in Los Angeles for very nearly fifty years, and for the past twenty years or more that show was held at the Airtel Plaza Hotel at Van Nuys airport. Ettridge had studios for some years in Santa Barbara, California, and at Worplesdon in Surrey. His work was acquired for many important collections in America, including Frank Sinatra, Danny Kaye, John Travolta, Clay Lacy, the San Diego aerospace museum, the museum of flight, the American Hall of aviation history, Brazilian air ministry, and several major airlines such as Qantas and American Airlines.
