Fine Art Collection
Along with a number of historical framed photographs, FAST has been donated a considerable amount of commercial aviation art from many professional artists. Also original paintings are held in the collection from a number of skilled amateur artists.
The collection currently holds works in the form of paintings, drawings, posters and other printed material. There is also a small sculpture collection and some fine examples of glass-blown ornaments from the RAE glassblowers, who worked with all the RAE Departments to provide the experimental components which were not available from normal commercial sources.
Printed items include recruitment, air display and airline advertisement posters as well as ‘fine art’ posters intended for domestic use.
The collection also houses a fairly comprehensive collection of British Aerospace commercial advertising originals.
