THE BATTLE OF AGINCOURT - Painting now at the Royal Armouries

Graham Turner's original painting of Henry V at the Battle of Agincourt is now part of the Royal Armouries collection and on display at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.

The large oil on canvas was painted to mark the 600th Anniversary of Agincourt, a battle that pitted Henry V's small and exhausted army against the massed ranks of the French nobility, made icons of Henry V and the English longbowman, and became part of English national identity.

Henry V is in the thick of the fighting, surrounded by his bodyguard and with his banners flying above him, as they desperately fight off the French knights and men at arms who have struggled through the mud and barrage of English arrows to reach their antagonists.

BATTLE OF THE SOMME CENTENERY 1916-2016

THE CHARGE AT HIGH WOOD

In July 2016 Graham Turner took part in a two-day commemorative ride on the Somme battlefield, in full cavalry kit, retracing the steps of the only cavalry action to take place during the battle, the charge at High Wood, 14th July 1916.

CLICK HERE to read an article Graham has written for 'Battlefield', the magazine on the Battlefields Trust, about the charge and recounting his own experiences a century later.

'The Great War holds a terrible fascination for me, and my own personal love of horses inevitably makes their involvement in this horrific conflict particularly poignant. I am honoured to be taking part in this commemorative ride, and as we visit the various locations and cemeteries on our route we will remember those whose lives were lost, both human and equine.

In their Facebook post the Civil War Centre said 'Graham is the UK's top illustrator of this period and visitors can look forward to seeing a selection rotated around the galleries and in the Wolfson Research Room, which opens next month. "The paintings are a great asset - very accessible and also historically accurate," enthused head curator Glyn Hughes. "They also cover all phases of the British Civil Wars - that's important because the conflict spread across three kingdoms and we want to tell the complete story."'
