Aces On The Western Front ROBERT TAYLOR RAF Luftwaffe Pilot signed
The ancient Norman monastery on Mont St. Michel provides the majestic backdrop as a group of Me109s race across the coast returning to their forward base in northern France
after a fighter sweep across the English Channel in early 1941.
During the spring of 1941 almost all of the great Luftwaffe fighter leaders dueled across the English Channel on a daily basis with RAF Fighter Command.
But the Abbey of Mont St Michel has seen it all before: built by the Normans on a solid rock of granite rising 250 feet out of the sea, this ancient monastery has witnessed
conflict over almost a thousand years. It now plays backdrop to Robert Taylorís iconic painting.
Published in 1993 this outstanding piece has been sold out for many years and has become one of the most sought prints in Robert Taylorís extensive portfolio.
This is a rare after market print. Original Print size: 36" x 25" . (was previously framed). Excellent condition. A fantastic conversation piece !
The print is signed by the artist Robert Taylor and is personally autographed by some of the greatest Luftwaffe Aces of WWII. (note: Gunther Rall was added later ! Making it even more desireable ! ).
Gunther Rall was a highly decorated German military aviator, officer and General, whose military career spanned nearly forty years.
Rall was the third most successful fighter pilot in aviation history, behind Gerhard Barkhorn, who is second, and Erich Hartmann, who is first.
