Flight of Eagles by Robert Taylor

A unique multi-signed copy of a rare Robert Taylor edition.
18 signatures of legendary Luftwaffe pilots including 5 holders of the Knights Cross.

A magnificent rendition of the notorious Me109's of JG-26 - Adolf Galland's Jagdgeschwader (fighter wing) - climbing out of Abbeville on a bright morning in 1941. Leading the flight, is Galland himself - the greatest Fighter Leader of the Luftwaffe. Adolf Galland commanded the respect of both his compatriots and those of the Allied Air Forces who knew of his reputation - in particular his old adversary, Douglas Bader.

There were few sights more likely to set flowing the adrenalin of the fighter pilots of the Allied Air Forces in 1941 than the appearance of Adolf Galland's Me109's. Robert Taylor has captured on canvas that very moment when the Messerschmitts emerge from cloud cover into the magnificent coloured morning sky climbing to their battle height of 20,000ft. The pilots anticipate another engagement that will test to the limit the nerve and endurance of the brave young men of both sides. Always an incisive strategist and popular leader, Adolf Galland rapidly rose through the ranks of the Luftwaffe to become the youngest General in all the German forces at the age of only 29 years. Robert Taylor's painting does full justice to the menacing, yet beautiful appearance of this remarkable man's fighter wing.

Flight of Eagles by Robert Taylor

We are selling a copy of this print on behalf of one of our collectors. This example had extra signatures added many years ago at pilot events. It has been professionally mounted onto a board backing which, whilst not ideal, has served to give the print good protection during the process of having extra signatures added and resulted in a well presented print with only relatively minor evidence of handling. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a piece of superb artwork carrying the signatures of 18 Luftwaffe pilots, 5 of which were awarded the coveted Knights Cross.
