The Matted Collectors Edition

Dambusters - 'Goner 58A'

Robert Taylor’s dramatic work in graphite and paint – originally created as the working drawing for his acclaimed painting Three Good Bounces – depicts a moment during Flight Lieutenant Mick Martin’s attack on the Möhne Dam. With two attacks already made Martin, flying AJ-P, releases his Upkeep while Gibson in Lancaster AJ-G flies off his starboard beam in an attempt to draw some of the enemy flak. It was unsuccessful; his radio operator tapping out ‘Goner-5-8-A’ (the code for - ‘Special weapon released’) ‘exploded 50 yards from target’ – ‘no apparent breach’ – ‘target A’.

It would require two more attacks, from ‘Dinghy’ Young in AJ-A and David Maltby in AJ-J, before the weakened dam was finally breached, sending a tidal wave of water into the valley below. For Gibson it wasn’t over; he will lead the remaining crews to successfully breach the next target, the Eder dam.

Robert Taylor’s skill and artistry reflects his intimate and authentic knowledge of the events that took place on that epic, moonlit night in May 1943. Over the past four decades he has enjoyed the company of almost every man to survive Operation Chastise, has listened to their stories first-hand, and counted many of them as friends. The knowledge acquired, and the friendships gained have, without doubt, given Robert an unparalleled insight into the legendary Dambusters.

Dambusters - The Impossible Mission - Giclee Canvas Proof

All was quiet in the Ruhr valley on the night of 16/17 May 1943. Bright moonlight illuminated the night sky and the normally dark waters of the huge lakes, held back by the mighty dams, glinted brightly. The scene was somewhat different at RAF Scampton as nineteen Lancasters and 133 men from the recently formed 617 Squadron prepared to carry out a series of precision raids deep behind enemy lines. This highly secret mission went under the code name Operation Chastise, but the world would come to know it as the Dambusters Raid!

The peace at the Möhne Dam was shattered soon after midnight when Guy Gibson in Lancaster AJ-G made the first attack. The flak gunners, relaxing in their turrets, had no idea what was to come. One-by-one, following Gibson’s lead, the modified Lancasters flew into a curtain of deadly gunfire and somehow maintained a precise height of 60ft and speed of 230mph – calibrated perfectly to allow their Barnes Wallis designed bouncing bomb to strike the dam wall, sink and explode.

Robert Taylor’s aviation masterpiece depicts the moment that “Dingy” Young in Lancaster AJ-A releases his cylindrical, hydrostatically-triggered mine – clearly visible against the huge splash as it hits the water. The mighty Möhne Dam has but moments to live.

Originally released in 2006, this powerful and dramatic piece has joined the ranks of the most celebrated aviation paintings ever created. The original signed prints are among the most sought after of any edition and highly-prized by collectors, so we are delighted that this iconic piece is available as a GICLÉE STUDIO PROOF ON CANVAS.

Replicated onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist, we are delighted to issue the very exclusive Exhibition Proofs – their extra-large size creates imposing centrepieces for the large wall, workplace or hangar.

Dangerous Coast - The Banff Strike Wing

A large force of Mosquitos from RAF Coastal Command’s Banff Strike Wing exit a deep-sided fjord along Norway’s rugged, heavily defended mountainous coast. In the distance, smoke and explosions reverberate from their successful rocket strike against enemy coastal shipping, destroying yet another cargo of iron ore destined for the furnaces of Germany’s industrial war machine. Above them P-51 Mustangs provide top cover support should any patrolling enemy fighters decide to make an appearance.

The de Havilland Mosquito was arguably the finest multi-role combat aircraft of World War II and, remarkably, one of the few front-line aircraft constructed almost entirely of wood - few other warbirds were built for so many different duties. Amongst its countless roles it formed the core of Coastal Command’s legendary anti-shipping strike force, and it is this role that is the subject of Robert Taylor's thrilling new painting, paying tribute to the Mosquito crews of World War II.

Fresh from the studio of the world’s master aviation artist, each print in Robert Taylor’s compelling new edition has been signed by some of the most respected Mosquito aircrew of World War II to make this wonderful collectors’ item a timely piece to be treasured for the generations that follow.

THE LIMITED EDITION
Every print has been signed in pencil by THREE highly distinguished Mosquito aircrew, together with the artist Robert Taylor. Each print is individually hand-numbered.

Flight Lieutenant DES CURTIS DFC - Navigator / Banff Strike Wing
Warrant Officer RICHARD ‘DICK’ MAYWOOD - Pilot / Pathfinders & Light Night Strike Force
Flight Lieutenant BRIAN BEATTIE - Pilot / Banff Strike Wing

THE COLLECTORS’ EDITION
Every print in these TEN signature editions, additionally signed by seven of the most highly experienced and well respected Pilots and Navigators who flew the Mosquito in combat over Europe:

D-Day Drop 'Stick 21'

At 23.45 on the night of 5 June 1944, the 101st Airborne’s most legendary unit of combat paratroopers – the notorious ‘Filthy Thirteen’ – jumped into France near the village of Sainte Mère Église, in the final hours before the D-Day landings.

They were the Screaming Eagles’ most notorious unit, a small bunch of raw, tough, ruthless young men. Hard drinking and savage fighting - and that was only in training -with scant regard for authority. And if the reputation of this unique bunch of renegades within the ranks of the 101st was formidable, for the Germans it became one of sheer terror.

Officially they were the First Demolition Squadron, HQ Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne. Unofficially they were the ‘Filthy Thirteen’.

Robert Taylor’s classic drawing, part of his Graphite Collection, captures the moment on the night of 5 June 1944 when the 101st Airborne’s legendary squad of elite paratroopers jump into battle in the vital hours before the D-Day sea-borne landings commence. The pilots of the 440th Troop Carrier Group struggle to keep their Dakotas level as deadly flak pummels the formation.

THE LIMITED EDITION
Each print in every edition is personally signed by two of the original ‘Filthy Thirteen’, together with artist Robert Taylor.

SGT JAKE ‘McNASTY’ McNIECE
The unofficial leader of the ‘Filthy Thirteen’, Jake McNiece was the inspiration for the ‘Mohawk’ haircuts and war paint that the men wore on D-Day. He survived four combat jumps during WWII.

PVT JACK ‘HAWKEYE’ WOMER
Joining the ‘Filthy Thirteen’ before D-Day he was the best shot in the unit. Separated on the D-Day drop he initially fought alongside the 501st PIR before being reunited with his company.

D-Day The Airborne Assault - The Giclee Studio Proof

Robert Taylor’s iconic masterpiece D-Day - The Airborne Assault has been hailed by many leading veterans as the most realistic portrayal of D-Day air events rendered by any artist. Seen crossing a section of the invasion beaches, and closely escorted by P- 51Bs of the 354th Fighter Group, C-47s of the 438th TCG tow CG-4 Waco gliders bringing in yet more reinforcements for the 82nd Airborne Division.

Unsurprisingly the signed lithographic edition sold out shortly after its publication exactly twenty years ago on the 50th Anniversary of D-Day. But now, on the historic occasion of the 70th Anniversary, the most advanced
high-definition Giclée technology has allowed us to faithfully replicate this iconic painting onto canvas creating a Museum Collectors item that will provide history enthusiasts with an outstanding piece to be treasured for a lifetime

“These Giclée Proofs are so impressive, they are as close to my original painting….as it’s possible to achieve on reproduced format” Robert Taylor

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs is mounted onto high quality stretchers and fully authorised and signed by the artist Robert Taylor.

Defence of the Realm

In the azure skies above London and the south-eastern Shires of England during the long, hot summer of 1940, a small band of RAF fighter pilots, substantially out-numbered, and against all odds, flew and fought a savage aerial battle in defence of the Realm. Their success in repelling the might of the Luftwaffe has become legend. They were Churchill’s FEW. Fresh from the heat of battle after a dog-fight over the city, No. 85 Squadron’s C.O., Peter Townsend, levels off and turns his Hurricane for home to re-fuel, re-arm, and rejoin the fight. A symbolic portrayal paying tribute to the Hawker Hurricane and its legendary pilots who, between them, accounted for four of every five enemy aircraft destroyed during the momentous Battle of Britain.

Overall print size: 28" x 21"

Each print is individually signed and numbered by Robert Taylor and individually signed by Group Captain Peter Townsend.

Desert Victory

IAF Squadron Commander Avaham Lanir, flying an Israeli Air Force Mirage III high over the Syrian desert, scores a victory over a Syrian MiG-21 on 9 November 1972. Later, during the Yom Kippur War, his Mirage was hit by a Syrian missile ambush, forcing him to eject over enemy territory. Despite valiant efforts to rescue him, he was captured by the Syrians and died under interrogation.

Commissioned to honor the memory of Lt Col Avraham ‘Avi’ Lanir, one of the Israeli Air Force's most respected commanders, Robert Taylor’s sensational working drawing is the original conception behind his outstanding painting ONE MiG DOWN – and is signed by no less than SIX JET DOUBLE ACES!

Joining artist Robert Taylor in signing each print are six Israeli Air Force fighter pilots who flew the Mirage in combat and all achieved Double Ace status. Between them they have amassed at least 74½ jet victories:

Colonel GIORA EVEN EPSTEIN – the highest scoring jet-to-jet Ace in history with 17 confirmed kills.

Brigadier General ISRAEL BAHARAV – scored 12 confirmed victories including 5 double kills, downing more MiG-21s than any other pilot.

Colonel YEHUDA KOREN – was officially credited with 10½ victories in the Mirage.

Lieutenant Colonel AVRAHAM SALOMON – scored 14½victories, including the last ever in an Israeli Mirage.

Colonel ODED MAROM – credited with at least 10½ victories in the Mirage.

Lieutenant Colonel SHLOMO LEVY – scored a minimum of 10 confirmed victories.

Desert Warrior

With Mussolini’s army faring badly in North Africa, Hitler quickly recognised that he would have no option but to give his Italian ally substantial military assistance. It came in the form of Generalleutnant Erwin Rommel who, on 12 February 1941, landed in Tripoli ready to take command of a new German army being dispatched to Libya. Its name was soon to be famous around the world – the Afrika Korps.

Assigned to their support was I./JG27 under the command of Eduard Neumann, one of the most respected Luftwaffe fighter leaders of World War 2. The Gruppe was made up of veterans who’d taken part in the French campaign and the Battle of Britain so it didn’t take long for Neumann’s pilots to make their presence felt; on their first combat mission from Ain el-Gazala on 19 April they claimed the destruction of four RAF Hurricanes and in the process notched up the Gruppe’s 100th victory of the war so far.

With the arrival of the rest of the Gruppe from Russia at the end of 1941, JG27 would spend the next year defending Rommel’s front line in North Africa, their name indelibly linked to the Western Desert. And it was here that Neumann would mentor Hans-Joachim Marseilles who, awarded the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, scored all but seven of his 158 victories in the Western Desert to become one of the highest-scoring Luftwaffe Aces in history.

Previously unreleased, Desert Warrior was painted in 1986, a period of his career that included some of Robert’s most famous Luftwaffe pieces such as JG-52 (1986), Ace of Aces (1988), Swansong (1988), The Abbeville Boys (1989), Stuka (1990) and Gathering Storm (1990). Robert fittingly depicts a Bf109 from I./JG27 near their base in north-east Libya, a small dusty village near the coast called Ain el-Gazala, from which they were tasked to protect the Ju87 Stukas attacking the encircled British army in Tobruk, just 40 miles away.

As with many of Robert’s early and long sold-out editions, the prints have been signed by an astonishing collection of Luftwaffe veterans which is now impossible to replicate. Included is the legendary Eduard Neumann himself, along with Aces who flew in combat with him in the Western Desert, creating a historic collector’s piece that is destined to become an instant classic.

THE LIMITED EDITION & ARTIST PROOFS

Joining artist Robert Taylor in signing every print are four highly respected Luftwaffe Aces who flew Bf109s with JG27 in the desert:

Oberst EDUARD NEUMANN - 11 victories
Ambassador FRANZ ELLES - 5 victories

Hauptmann FRITZ KELLER - 13 victories

THE MATTED COLLECTOR’S EDITION

Each signed print is issued conservation matted to include the original autographs of a further Luftwaffe Ace who flew in Africa during WWII:

Devastating Strike

It was less glamorous than the Spitfires and Hurricanes of the Battle of Britain and wasn’t seen as the backbone of Bomber Command yet the de Havilland Mosquito can arguably claim to be the RAFs ‘greatest’ aircraft of WWII.

It was one the fastest operational aircraft in the world, one of the most envied – and one of the most feared. Built almost entirely of wood, the beautifully streamlined ‘Wooden Wonder’ was a triumph of ingenuity at a time when resources of light alloys were in short supply.

Its greatest attribute was speed and the Mosquito became the finest multi-role combat aircraft of WWII. No other Allied military aircraft was built in so many versions for so many roles – some 43 different variants were produced during its long and distinguished career.

This dramatic tribute depicts Mosquito Mk.VIs from 143 Squadron, part of the famous Banff Strike Wing, delivering a blistering strike on a pair of large enemy ships off the Norwegian coast in early 1945. Their salvo of rockets, however, will likely be enough to penetrate the ships’ hulls.

With the edition personally signed by Mosquito veterans, including those who flew with the Banff Strike Wing, this release from the world’s premier aviation artist has all the hallmarks of a masterpiece in the making.

Doolittle's D-Day - The Giclee Studio Proof

Hero of the famous 1942 raid on Tokyo, Jimmy Doolittle always led from the front. By 6 June 1944 he was in command of the US 8th Air Force and wanted to see for himself how the battle was going. And that’s exactly what he did. Piloting a P-38 across the beaches for two hours he returned to base, racing over to General Eisenhower’s headquarters to provide the first report the Supreme Allied Commander received, beating his own intelligence channels by several hours.

The signed limited edition of Doolittle’s D-Day was originally published to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of D-Day and is now a highly-collectable edition on the secondary market. To commemorate the 70th Anniversary this stunning painting is now issued as a museum quality Giclée Studio Proof on canvas for all aviation and military art enthusiasts to add to their D-Day collections.

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs is mounted onto high quality stretchers and fully authorised and signed by the artist Robert Taylor.

RECOUNTING AN ACTION DURING THE LARGEST JET-TO-JET BATTLE IN HISTORY - THE YOM KIPPUR WAR

Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement – is the holiest day in the Hebrew calendar and in Israel is marked by a national holiday but on that day in 1973 the unexpected happened. At 14.00 hours on 6 October the coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israeli positions. Thousands of Egyptian troops swarmed across the Suez Canal into Israeli- held Sinai whilst in the north nearly 1,500 Syrian tanks backed by artillery thrust west towards Israel. Facing this sudden surprise attack on the Golan Heights were less than 200 Israeli tanks. In the air, too, Egyptian and Syrian air forces struck in a single, co-ordinated assault hitting the Israeli’s anti-aircraft defences and hoping to deliver a fatal blow.

Largely unprepared, Israel reeled however within hours it mobilised its fighting reserves and began a ferocious battle to stem the enemies advance. As Israeli tanks and infantry rushed to hold the front line and, in the north, push the enemy back, Israeli Air Force jets overhead fought a heroic battle to regain the initiative and control of the skies. It was grim work. Both Egyptian and Syrian forces were equipped with hundreds of Soviet-supplied SAM missiles but the tide of war was turning and a battered Israeli Air Force now went on the counter-offensive. And amongst their main targets were the heavily-defended Egyptian air bases that lay deep in the Nile delta.

Robert Taylor’s powerful and dramatic painting depicts one such strike that took place on 14 October 1973, half way through the war, when Israeli F-4 Phantom fighter-bombers made simultaneous strikes against the Egyptian air bases at Mansoura and Tanta north of Cairo.

After the first wave struck the elite Egyptian MiG-21 units at El Mansoura, the other Phantom squadrons attacked Tanta in waves, turning to dog-fighting immediately after dropping their ordnance. Tanta was also home to two squadrons of Libyan Mirage 5s and the furious air battle that ensued involved countless fighter aircraft. Despite bitter opposition, the successful IAF missions eliminated much of the effectiveness of the Egyptian Air Force and its Libyan allies.

Joining artist Robert Taylor in signing each print are TWENTY TWO Pilots and Navigators who flew the F-4 Phantom with the Israeli Air Force in the Yom Kippur War. Between them they amassed at least SEVENTY jet victories:

THE PILOTS

Brigadier General AMIR NACHUMI – scored 14 victories in total, 7 in the F-4 and 7 in the F-16.

Brigadier General SHLOMO EGOZY – 10 victories, 2 in the Mirage and 8 in the F-4, Israel’s highest-scoring F-4 ace.

Eagles on the Rampage

Dominating the skies over Germany, P-51s of the 4th Fighter Group – The Eagles - sweep across the cloud tops, their pilots scanning the distant horizon for any signs of the Luftwaffe. They are ready for trouble should the enemy decide to chance their luck. . . . . .Formed in September 1942 from the RAF Eagle Squadrons, the Fourth Fighter Group was the oldest fighter unit in the Eighth Air Force; Under the command of Don Blakeslee, described as ‘probably the best fighter leader of the war’, the combined air and ground victories notched up by ‘The Eagles’ during World War II surpassed any other fighter group. They were the first to penetrate German air space, and the first to engage the Luftwaffe over Berlin. Hermann Goering later remarked ‘When I saw those Mustangs over Berlin, I knew that the war was lost’.

Fury of Assault

When Luftwaffe bombers first appeared in force in the night skies over London in September 1940 they heralded the beginning of The Blitz - the most sustained period of concentrated bombing aimed at British cities during World War II. Robert Taylor’s evocative new painting brings to life the frightening scenario of the Luftwaffe’s night bombing campaign. It is December 1941, and London is once again under concentrated attack. With fires raging below, the armada of German bombers is clearly visible in the night sky as they sweep across the city. Shimmering in the glow of destruction, a lone Hurricane night-fighter from 85 Squadron, based at nearby Gravesend, engages Heinkel 111s of KG55 in a desperate attempt to break up the formations.

Adding great authenticity to each print in Robert Taylor’s dramatic new five-signature Commemorative Limited Edition print FURY OF ASSAULT, every copy has been individually hand-signed in pencil by four Luftwaffe Heinkel pilots who flew with KG55 during World War II along with an RAF Hurricane night-fighter pilot.

Headlong Into The Clash

Despite the shock of Operation Bodenplatte on New Year’s Eve – the Luftwaffe’s unexpected yet unsuccessful attempt to wipe out the Allied air forces on their advanced airfields in the Low Countries – Germany had all but surrendered air superiority to the Allies. Today, therefore, was yet another gamble as they assembled some 200 fighters to counter nearly 900 Eighth Air Force bombers, and almost as many fighter escorts, tasked with destroying oil refineries, storage depots and other strategic targets in central Germany. For the Luftwaffe the day was to end in retreat and disaster; they lost 161 fighters, the highest number ever recorded. Never again would the once mighty Jagdverbänd rise in strength to challenge the Mighty Eighth.

Few artists can capture the ferocity of an aerial battle with the skill and ability of Robert Taylor, and this breath-taking painting will undoubtedly rank as one of the pinnacles in his long and distinguished career. He captures a moment during that massive aerial battle in January 1945 near Ludwigslust in northern Germany, as enemy fighters from JG300 and JG301 make a head-on attack through a close formation of B-17s from the 390th Bomb Group who are heading to bomb Magdeburg. But their ever-vigilant P-51 escorts are aware of the threat and quickly engage the enemy with devastating results.

In the centre of the action Flt Lt Joe Peterburs of the 20th Fighter Group screams past the Bf109G of Lt Bruno Klostermann from II./JG300 who is attempting to penetrate the bomber formation. Peterburs claimed an Fw190 during the battle, Klostermann, however, will not survive the day.

As the leading publisher of aviation art for over four decades, we are proud that the prints are autographed by distinguished USAAF and Luftwaffe veterans who fought during the Defense of the Reich, adding great historical importance to this stunning release. Many of the signatories are sadly no longer with us, giving aviation art connoisseurs a rare opportunity to acquire a remarkable and valuable collector’s piece.

Height Of The Battle - The Giclee Studio Proof

Continuing his popular series of Giclée Studio Proofs on canvas, Robert Taylor portrays Squadron Leader ‘Sailor’ Malan DFC, Commanding Officer of 74 Squadron and one of the great Battle of Britain Aces, in his famous painting Height of the Battle. Having already made one diving attack into the force of Luftwaffe He111 bombers approaching London with their fighter escort, ‘Sailor’ peels his Spitfire over for a second attack. Another top Ace, Pilot Officer Harbourne Stephen DFC, is hard on his heels. Below them, typifying the scene as it was on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 September 1940, Mk.I Hurricanes from 17 and 56 Squadrons have already joined the fray.

This superb piece was originally released as a veteran signed limited edition print some years ago and is long sold out, so the Military Gallery is delighted that this wonderful Masterwork painting is now faithfully replicated on canvas using the latest high-definition Giclée technology.

Available individually, as matching-numbered pairs, or as a full set, with MAPLE LEAF SCRAMBLE and HURRICANE ATTACK whilst stocks allow.

Printed onto fine canvas, each carefully crafted Studio Proof is signed by Robert Taylor, stamped on the back, hand-numbered and issued with a Certificate of Authenticity. Each canvas is released pre-stretched from the Military Gallery studio ready to simply drop into a frame of your choice.

The War In The Pacific Companion Print

Hellcat Fury

Truk, the small atoll in the South Pacific, was the major anchorage for the Japanese Fleet. Comprising a magnificent harbor and four heavily defended airfields, it was thought impregnable by the US forces as they fought their way up through the Pacific. But on 16-17 February 1944 a violent two-day aerial assault by carrierborne aircraft of Task Force 58 exploded the myth. In just two days the US Navy flyers sunk over 200,000 tons of Japanese naval shipping and destroyed an estimated 275 enemy aircraft, totally eliminating all effectiveness of the Japanese base. Light as the US Navy losses were only 25 aircraft failed to return the battle for Truk was ferocious. The ground installations, ships, and airfield batteries put up intense antiaircraft fire against the attacking American aircraft, while Zeros did their best to repel the onslaught. The air above the atoll became a maelstrom of flak, tracer, flying lead and shrapnel, while below huge explosions rocked the ground as ammo and fuel dumps were hit, fires raged, and the acrid smoke of battle pervaded the entire area. In this important new painting, his first featuring the F6F Hellcat, Robert Taylor brings to life the scenario that was crucial to Admiral Spruance’s forceful drive through the Central Pacific. The once feared Japanese base at Truk is being reduced to a statistic of war. Hellcats of VF6 hurtle across the lagoon at masthead height with guns blazing, creating havoc as they tear into the enemy positions below. Seen in the foreground is the F6F-3 of Lt. Alex Vracui, subsequently to become one of the Navy’s top guns. This exhilarating new work dramatically conveys the awesome conditions endured day after day by the pilots of the US Navy and Marine Corps in the Pacific. With prints signed by a host of US Navy Aces, including the first F6F Hellcat Ace of World War II, Robert has created a limited edition print that will take pride of place in many discerning print collections.

Hell Hawks Over Utah

As elements of the US VII Corps storm ashore on Utah beach below, P-47D Thunderbolts from the 365th Fighter Group, US Ninth Air Force - The Hell Hawks - overfly the Normandy bridgehead on the morning of D-Day, 6 June 1944. Flying from their base in southern England, the mighty Hell Hawks head inland to attack and successfully suppress German positions in support of the American advance.

Robert Taylor’s outstanding Masterwork, specially commissioned to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the battle for Normandy, pays tribute to the roughnecks of the 365th Fighter Group as they cross Utah Beach on the morning of 6 June 1944. They will shortly be in action taking out German armored units resisting the advance of the US First Army from the invasion beaches.

In the foreground is The Madam, the P-47 of Lieutenant John Feltzer from the 387th Fighter Squadron. He is just one of the remaining Hell Hawk pilots who have personally signed this release and the Military Gallery is truly honored and proud to have gathered together a staggering THIRTEEN pilots of this legendary unit to autograph the edition, creating a valuable and historic collectors piece.

A TRIBUTE TO THE MEN WHO FLEW THE LANCASTER. The crews of Bomber Command faced one of the most daunting tasks, calling for courage sustained night after night, in conditions of desperate danger and discomfort. They did not fail us and 55,573 paid the supreme sacrifice”. In his new tribute to “The Many”, Robert Taylor’s evocative painting HIGH COST recreates a typical scene encountered by many Royal Air Force bomber squadrons on raids over enemy occupied territory: Having already survived 30 successful operational sorties, on 9 February 1945 Lancaster PG-G of 619 Squadron has been intercepted by Luftwaffe night-fighters during a raid over Stettin Bay.

Home Again England

By April 1945 everyone, except a few die-hard fanatical Nazis, knew the war in Europe was over; the end was only a matter of time. So when Bomber Command dispatched a force of over 300 Lancaster bombers to destroy Hitler’s infamous Obersalzberg retreat at Berchtesgaden on 25 April, it would prove to be their last major raid of the war – just a few days later Hitler committed suicide as Berlin crumpled around him. In the early hours of 7 May General Alfred Jodl, Chief-of-Staff of German High Command, unconditionally surrendered all German armed forces and for the RAF the war in mainland Europe was finally over.

The fight had lasted for nearly six years during which time its airmen had faced unmitigated dangers and often appalling flying conditions, with moments of exhilaration balanced by those of terror because victory had come at a terrible price; of the 125,000 aircrew to have served in RAF Bomber Command 55,573 had been killed whilst in Fighter Command 3,690 airmen had paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Undoubtedly the aircrew who flew and fought with the RAF as it played its part in removing the tyranny of Nazi power and occupation from Europe were among the bravest of the brave and two aircraft above all others came to symbolise their heroic fight: the elegant Spitfire, magnificent in defence during the dark days of 1940, lethal in attack thereafter; and the awe-inspiring Avro Lancaster, the four-engined heavy bomber that from 1942 onwards formed the backbone of Bomber Command and allowed the RAF to take the war into the very heart of Hitler’s Germany.

In recognition of the role played by these two legendary aircraft and the men who flew them, Robert’s striking piece Home Again England depicts a scene during those final few weeks of the war. A battle-weary Lancaster limps home along the Norfolk coast with its outer starboard engine feathered and out of action following one of Bomber Command’s last daylight operations. Luckily a group of Mk.XIV Spitfires is on hand to provide close escort and will see the bomber safely back to base.

Home At Dusk - The Giclee Studio Proof

It is winter 1944 and the snow has brought a special quiet to the English countryside in the late evening twilight. The war seems a world away until the tranquility is shattered by the unmistakable roar of Merlin engines, bringing about a harsh reminder of the realities of war-torn Europe. As dusk gathers and just feet above the gently waving reeds of the East Anglian fens, P-51 Mustangs sprint for home bearing the scars of the day’s battle; soon the tensions of aerial combat will be forgotten for a few hours, melting into an evening of camaraderie. Tomorrow will be a new day.

Robert Taylor’s classic Masterwork depicts this life of extremes lived to the full by a special breed of men who flew this iconic fighter as the Allies pushed for victory in Europe during the final stages of WWII. Tough, supremely confident, determined, and gloriously brave; it was an era that belonged to them and an era that is immortalized by the spell-binding artistry of the world’s leading military and aviation artist.

This heart-warming piece, originally published in 1992 as a veteran signed limited edition print, sold out quickly after its release. However, the Military Gallery is delighted that, thanks to the introduction of high-definition technology, this classic image is now available as the latest in the hugely popular series of artist signed GICLÉE STUDIO PROOFS on canvas.

Carefully crafted onto fine canvas, each of these crafted Giclée Proofs are fully authorized and signed by Robert Taylor, hand-numbered and issued with a Certificate of Authenticity. Each canvas is released pre-stretched ready to simply drop into a frame of your choice.

Hornblower And The Indefatigable - Giclee Sudio Proofs

Robert Taylor’s glorious Maritime Masterwork depicting the exploits of eighteenth century naval hero Horatio Hornblower. In this triumphant visual recreation, the Royal Navy frigate Indefatigable, under the command of Captain Pellew and with the young Midshipman Hornblower aboard, engages and captures a French frigate.

Winter in the Bay of Biscay would have brought ferocious gales and bitter cold for the hardy ship’s crews aboard the warships of the Royal Navy blockading the ports off the west coast of Napoleon’s France. But the British sailors were a tough breed and any chance of action came as a welcome relief, and perhaps the opportunity of prize money to be won. If an enemy ship can be captured!

Robert Taylor’s magnificent and now famous painting Hornblower and the Indefatigable depicts the first exchange of cannon fire between the Indefatigable and a 40-gun French frigate attempting to run the blockade on a chill winter’s morning. As the first rays of a watery sun illuminate the action the two ships edge closer and within minutes both hulls will crash together, with the French vessel being boarded and taken.

When it was first published as a limited edition, Hornblower and the Indefatigable was nominated for the prestigious ‘Collector Editions Award of Excellence’ in recognition of outstanding creation and its easy to understand why - this glorious new GICLÉE CANVAS PROOF is a masterpiece!

AVAILABLE INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A MATCHING NUMBERED PAIR WITH 'AMERICAN CLIPPER FLYING CLOUD' - WHILE STOCKS LAST

Reproduced in this dramatic and imposing size this masterpiece could grace the walls of any home, study or office and certainly create a truly commanding centerpiece!

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist to match his original painting, each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs is signed by the artist Robert Taylor, stamped on the back, hand-numbered and issued with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Hornchurch Scramble

On August 12th, 1940 the Luftwaffe turned their full attention to the RAF's forward fighter bases and radar stations with the intent to obliterate them once and for all. The outcome of the Battle of Britain hung in the balance. It was late in the afternoon of Sunday, 18 August 1940. The previous week had seen the hardest days of fighting in the Battle of Britain as the young pilots of the RAF Fighter Command had engaged in deadly duels with the Luftwaffe. Bystanders gazed cautiously upwards at the weaving contrails in the clear blue skies over southern England as they anxiously awaited the outcome. For just a moment, all was at peace: A gentle breeze floated across the airfield at RAF Hornchurch as the exhausted young pilots of 54 Squadron could rest for a few brief minutes and reflect on their own previous two encounters with the enemy that day. The Luftwaffe had thrown everything at them in the past few days, but today had been the toughest of them all. And then the calm was shattered by the shrill tones of the alarm, the Luftwaffe had launched another huge raid of over 300 aircraft across the Channel, and it looked like Hornchurch was the target.

Robert Taylor's masterful painting, Hornchurch Scramble, portrays the moment as 54 Squadron's commanding officer, Squadron Leader James Leathart, taxis out at Hornchurch to prepare for take-off. Quickly following, the aircraft of New Zealander Colin Gray is guided out from dispersal by his ground crew. Gray would claim 3 Bf110s in the encounter and would eventually become the top scoring New Zealand Ace of the war.

Hunters At Dawn

It became known as the most exclusive club in the history of air combat – the Three Hundred Club!

Those Aces with over 100 victories were exceptional; to reach 200 victories was a spectacular achievement. Yet two men went even further shooting down more than 300 enemy aircraft which placed them in a league of their own. They were the elite of the elite, and their names are legendary – Erich Hartmann and Gerhard Barkhorn.

It is no surprise that these iconic Aces scored their victories whilst flying with the legendary fighter wing JG52 and the Geschwader boasted some of greatest Luftwaffe pilots of WWII among its ranks – including the top three Aces of all time. Such renowned pilots as Gunther Rall (275 victories), Wilhelm Batz (237 victories), Hermann Graf (212 victories) and Helmut Lipfert (203 victories) helped this formidable unit notch up more than 10,000 victories making it the most successful fighter wing in history.

Robert Taylor, the world’s premier aviation artist, has created a stunning portfolio dedicated to the two highest scoring fighter pilots of all time. Hunters at Dawn is the first release in this pair and features Hptm. Gerhard Barkhorn, Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG52. The great Ace, flying his Bf109 G- 6, leads the Stab as they climb out from their base near the Black Sea, early November 1943. The crisp air of day break is temporarily punctuated by the roar of Daimler-Benz engines as the deadly Messerschmitt fighters set off on their daily hunt for Soviet aircraft over the front line.

The legendary Gruppenkommandeur was by now close to his 200th victory, a feat he achieved on 30 November 1943. Even then little did he or his comrades know that this was only a temporary milestone in his exceptional combat career – although the enemy might have feared it.

In tribute to this great Ace the edition is signed by iconic Luftwaffe Aces who flew on the Russian Front and the Tribute Edition includes the original signature of Barkhorn himself.
