"Legends of Combat" - Roy Grinnell - World War II Aviation Art


Roy Grinnell was born in Santa Barbara, California. As a child, he enjoyed drawing airplanes, and at age of eleven, painted a Swedish P-51 shooting down a Me-109 for his Swedish grandmother. When Roy graduated from High School, he decided to join the Navy and was stationed in Guam. After Roy served his time in the Navy, he attended the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles, California, and he graduated with honors.

Preserving Aviation History on canvas is Roy Grinnell's forte' and it has brought him worldwide recognition as an aviation artist of the highest caliber. Roy's documentation of aerial combat events has given him the honor of being the official artist of the American Fighter Aces Association. Over the years, Roy has painted 27 original oil paintings for the American Fighter Aces depicting combat missions of the top American Aces of WW1, WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War, including George Vaughn, Douglas Campbell, Ray Brooks, Tex Hill, Joe Foss, Gabby Gabreski, Marion Carl, Rex Barber, Alex Vraciu, Steve Ritchie, and Chuck Yeager. In 2004, at the American Fighter Aces Reunion in Seattle, Washington, Roy was made an "Honorary Ace." A large selection of the American Fighter Aces oil paintings are on display at the Museum of Flight, Personal Courage Wing, Boeing Field, Seattle, Wa.

Roy is also the official artist of the American Combat Airman Hall of Fame of the Commemorative Air Force in Midland, Texas. Several of Roy's oil paintings are on display at the Commemorative Air Force Headquarters in Midland. Several other museums where Roy's aviation oil paintings are displayed are the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, Florida, The Polish War Museum in Warsaw, Poland, The United State Air Force Museum, Dayton, Ohio, The National Aviation Hall of Fame, Dayton, Ohio, and the Normandie Niemen Museum in Les Andelys, France.

A Limited Edition print is restricted to a certain number. For example, if 400 prints are made from an original painting, once they’re gone, that’s it. There is no limit to the number of open edition prints of a particular painting. That’s why Limited Edition prints are more expensive — and more valuable to collectors — than "open" edition. Rare objects are more valuable.

The term "giclee print" denotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.

All Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered (S/N) individually and include a Certificate of Authenticity.

All Limited Edition artwork is subject to availability at time of order. Although seller strives to remain currrent as to inventory, seller reserves the right to cancel a sale if item is no longer available at time of purchase.
