    Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen – better known to friend and foe alike as ‘The Red Baron’. With 80 confirmed victories, all scored in a short spell between September 1916 and April 1918, his rise to fame had been meteoric and he’d quickly racked up a string of victories to become not only a dashing national hero but the recipient of the coveted Pour le Mérite – the ‘Blue Max’ – Germany’s highest military award at that time. He’d just turned 25 when, in June 1917, he took command of a new elite fighter wing, Jagdgeschwader 1, soon to be known as ‘Richthofen’s Flying Circus’.

    In his stunning graphite work Richard brilliantly recreates a scene at an airfield in Flanders shortly before the German Spring Offensive of 1918. Flying his distinctive, highly recognisable red-painted Fokker Dr.1 tri-plane, Richthofen leads his men away from their makeshift base towards the British lines to prowl the skies above the Front. A few weeks later, the Red Baron took to the air for the last time. On 21 April 1918, flying his iconic tri-plane, Richthofen was killed by a single bullet during a low-level dogfight over the Somme.
