Days of glory; oil, 20 x 30"; John M. Horton, CSMA

Mr. Horton has been painting for 50 years and has trained at a variety of art schools in Britain. His work hangs in the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of Marine Artists in London, the Canadian Society of Marine Artists, as well as in private and public collections all over the world. One of his paintings was given to HMCS Vancouver from the City of Vancouver. While many of his works over the years have depicted the actions of both Royal Navy and Royal Canadian Navy ships, he has also done historical works of Canada's major seaports, and contemporary marine scenes.

Mr. Horton recently completed a number of paintings, that may be viewed and purchased here, for "The Art of OP APOLLO" - a project sponsored by the Department of History and Heritage of National Defense showing some of the activities of the Canadian Navy
