The Art Of Combat by Richard Taylor

It’s hardly surprising that Richard Taylor became a professional artist. His father is Robert Taylor, regarded as the finest aviation and maritime painter of his generation. For the past few years, however, Richard has been quietly carving out his own niche in the world of aviation and military art and is seen as one of the industry’s most exciting artists.

This beautifully illustrated book contains more than 30 of Richard’s air combat and military paintings, which have been successfully published as limited edition prints by the Military Gallery, together with a veritable feast of new drawings, many of which are seen here for the first time. Most of the paintings have a dedicated chapter to themselves in which the artist describes the history behind the images, and how each painting came into existence.

The impressive array of work contained within these pages will delight the thousands of collectors around the world who share a passion for classic warbirds of former times, and a love of fine aviation and military art as exemplified by the talent of Richard Taylor.

This superb hard back, case-bound first edition book includes 128 pages featuring Richards aviation and military paintings to date, along with specially commissioned pencil work.

Foreword by Brigadier General ROBERT CARDENAS USAF (Ret.)
'Bob' Cardenas is a veteran whose combat exploits as a Pilot in WWII form the basis for one of the many paintings featured in this book. At the end of the war he was responsible for testing the revolutionary German jets and was appointed Officer in Charge of Operations, becoming one of the most respected test pilots in the history of the United States Air Force. He was the command pilot of the B-29 that launched Captain Chuck Yeager and the Bell X-1 on its way to man’s first supersonic flight and later returned to combat in 1966 flying Republic F-105 Thunderchiefs in Vietnam.

Highly decorated, 'Bob' Cardenas is widely regarded as one of the most iconic Aviators in USAF history.

Wings Of War by Anthony Saunders

Anthony Saunders has gained a reputation as one of today's most gifted aviation and military artists. Original in concept and outstanding in the use of oil on canvas, his accomplishments not only portray a wonderful grasp of the speed and power required when depicting scenes of aerial combat but also the ability to create breathtaking sky and landscapes at the same time.

Each painting featured in this beautifully illustrated new book is the result of hours of meticulous research by the artist to ensure that it is historically as well as technically correct.

With the foreword written by the iconic veteran of the Dambusters Raid, George ‘Johnny' Johnson (who has also signed the limited edition book and print portfolio), the artist describes each painting in fascinating detail and the result of his many talents are obvious for all to see.

Overlord - D-Day and the Battle for Normandy Published by the Military Gallery

6 June 1944: the date that marked the beginning of the end of the war in north-west Europe, and the day on which the liberation of France began.

Re-live the story of D-Day with this 128 page book lavishly illustrated with paintings and drawings assembled from the archives of the Military Gallery. We travel through the pre-invasion preparation, the landings themselves, and subsequent battle for control of Normandy as seen through the eyes of the world's leading military and aviation artists, creating a visual masterpiece to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.

Together with specially commissioned new pieces, these images form an unrivalled anthology of artistic work depicting the events of D-Day. The paintings and drawings included are from the studios of five highly talented artists whose work helps to impart some of the emotion that photographs so often fail to capture:

Robert Taylor, Richard Taylor, Chris Collingwood, Simon Smith and Anthony Saunders.
