Reach for the Skies by Robert Taylor

Reach for the Skies by Robert Taylor

Aircraft - Spitfire

The Publisher Proofs

To help mark the 100th Anniversary of the RAF we are delighted to make available this classic Robert Taylor featuring one of the most iconic fighter Aces in history - Sir Douglas Bader.

Robert Taylor:
''I painted Reach for the Skies just before Sir Douglas Bader died. It was to have been issued as a limited edition print, carrying his signature. Douglas had been a wonderful friend and, in many ways, a mentor during my early days as a professional aviation artist and I felt particularly moved when I did the painting. Sir Douglas never saw it. Had he done so he would probably have said: ‘Can’t you put a couple of Me109’s into the picture Robert, and liven it up a bit?' ''

In special tribute to her husband, each print has been personally signed by Douglas Bader’s wife: Lady JOAN BADER OBE (17 March 1918 - 18 December 2015)

This Sceptred Isle by Robert Taylor

This Sceptred Isle by Robert Taylor

Aircraft - Spitfire - Battle of Britain

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle...this happy breed of men, this little world, this precious stone set in the silver sea, which serves it in the office of a wall or as a moat defensive to a house, against the envy of less happier lands…this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

William Shakespeare 'King Richard II’

For nearly a thousand years the white cliffs of southern England had taunted many a foreign army. These fortress walls of chalk, however, were defended by the moat-like waters of the Channel and together they had shielded the British from her enemies. Alongside Drake they had defied the armies of Spain and her great Armada and, in 1805, had halted the march of Napoleon’s Grande Armée. No enemy force since that of William the Conqueror in 1066 had successfully managed to cross the Channel in anger but, in May 1940, one of the most powerful armies the world had ever seen arrived at Calais. An invasion by Hitler’s all-conquering Wehrmacht was imminent - or so it seemed.

This edition carries the signatures of up to 15 veterans who fought during the Battle of Britain, including John Freeborn ( Veterans Edition, Remarque Editions, Tribute Edition) who is featured in the piece. It is a poignant reminder that a number of these iconic men have sadly passed away since signing, giving enthusiasts the opportunity to add a piece of great historic significance to their collections.

The Greatest Day - The Battle of Britain September 15th 1940 by Robert Taylor

Hurricane, Do17, Bf109

Leading his Duxford ‘Big Wing’, Squadron Leader Douglas Bader scores a direct hit on a Do17 as he dives his Hurricane into the mass of German bombers heading towards London, on the afternoon of 15 September 1940. As their hard-pressed Bf109 escorts become low on fuel and are forced to head back to France, the enemy bombers are left to fend for themselves. On this day the Luftwaffe lost almost 60 aircraft, the RAF less than half that number. It was the RAF's greatest day and the tide of the Battle of Britain had turned.
