Between 1996 and 1998, Robert Taylor’s publishers released three limited editions paying tribute to the Luftwaffe’s mercurial fighter and leader General Adolf Galland.  In close collaboration with the artist, Galland selected three of his most enduring memories of a distinguished career to be recreated as oil paintings.  These were completed in the early 1990s and limited edition prints produced.  The prints were signed by Galland and other distinguished World War II veterans.   By prior agreement with Adolf Galland the prints were not released until after he passed away in 1996, part of the sale proceeds being donated to his widow.
