Robert Taylor - Air Combat Paintings Volume II
This second volume of Robert Taylor’s aviation paintings is packed with classic images, the limited edition prints of which are highly prized by collectors, with virtually all of them commanding high secondary market premiums. The first 20 pages contain a narrative about Robert Taylor by friend Charles Walker, mostly concentrating on different areas such as particular commissions, Robert’s approach to painting, his personality and philosophy, and his relationship with the many famous aviators that he has come to know.
The remainder of the book focuses on 24 of Robert Taylor’s aviation paintings. Each painting is described by the artist and supplemented with plenty of pencil sketches and anecdotes. As usual with publications by David and Charles the presentation is superb throughout.
The book is issued with a blue cloth slip case with the artist’s signature gold blocked on the front cover. The book is signed and numbered inside by the artist.
