Robert Taylor - Air Combat Paintings Volume II - RTV2012


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, this is a little repetitive if you have got Volume I, but mostly concentrates 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. Foreword is by Group Captain Peter Townsend, CVO, DSO, DFC. The paintings section is introduced by Colonel Don Lopez.

Condition: This is a rare first edition full size hardback book. The book is in very good condition with little evidence of having been handled. The cloth covered binding is tight and clean. The dust jacket is generally good but with some indentations from handling.

It has been signed inside on the title page by the artist with a dedication to the book's previous owner:
'For Mick, with warmest wishes, Robert Taylor, Feb 95'

Overall this is a good example of this rare title carrying the original signature of the artist.

Authors: Charles Walker and Robert Taylor.
