Rare Prints

MISSION COMPLETED
Robert Taylor

Previous   Up   Next

A rare Robert Taylor Limited Edition carrying the original signatures of five
B-17 Medal of Honour holders.


Acclaimed as one of Robert Taylor's greatest paintings "Mission Completed" is quite breathtaking in its beauty and authority. A collectors' item by any standards, it is signed and numbered by the artist and countersigned by FIVE B-17 Medal of Honor Winners. Having survived a barrage of flak on the run-in to the target, this B-17 has taken a pounding from enemy fighters on the way home. With damage to elevators, stabilisers and ailerons, she is handling badly and has been losing height all the way back from Germany. Her crew have fought all the way to bring their ship home and they are exhausted. Robert Taylor's emotive study of the great B-17 Flying Fortress, will bring back many a memory. Set in the beautiful English countryside, the farm workers in the wheat field pause to gaze in wonder as the mighty warbird thunders overhead. Behind, another damaged B-17 will make it back  to base today. Another Mission Completed!

The print is authenticated with the original signatures of Col. William Lawley, Col. John Morgan, Lt. Col. Edward Michael, Lt. Col. Jay Zeamer and T/Sgt. Forrest Vosler - all five awarded the Medal of Honor for supreme courage when flying the B-17 Flying Fortress.
