Richard Taylor - The Art of Combat
Limited Edition Book and Print Set

Richard Taylor - The Art of Combat

This outstanding limited edition portfolio includes an individually numbered and signed copy of the book THE ART OF COMBAT and issued in a luxurious embossed slipcase. Each book is accompanied by a matching numbered copy of the superb print FINE TUNING, specially created by Richard for this occasion.

This superb hard back, case-bound first edition book includes 128 pages featuring Richards aviation and military paintings to date, along with specially commissioned pencil work.

It’s hardly surprising that Richard Taylor became a professional artist. His father is Robert Taylor, regarded as the finest aviation and maritime painter of his generation. For the past few years, however, Richard has been quietly carving out his own niche in the world of aviation and military art and is seen as one of the industry's most exciting artists.

This beautifully illustrated book contains more than 30 of Richard's air combat and military paintings, which have been successfully published as limited edition prints by the Military Gallery, together with a veritable feast of new drawings, many of which are seen here for the first time. Most of the paintings have a dedicated chapter to themselves in which the artist describes the history behind the images, and how each painting came into existence.
The impressive array of work contained within these pages will delight the thousands of collectors around the world who share a passion for classic warbirds of former times, and a love of fine aviation and military art as exemplified by the talent of Richard Taylor.
