Aces on the Western Front by Robert Taylor


Rare secondary market print by Robert Taylor signed by four great Luftwaffe Aces.

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 duelled 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 Taylor’s iconic painting.

Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, Aces on the Western Front, is signed by Luftwaffe veterans:
Generalleutnant Hannes Trautloft
Oberst Herbert Ihlefeld KC with Oak Leaves and Swords
Generalmajor Dietrich Hrabak KC with Oak Leaves
Generalleutnant Adolf Galland KC with Oak Leaves Swords and Diamonds.
