Robert Taylor - Air Combat Paintings Volume I - Smaller Size


First published in 1987 this fine collection of Robert Taylor's aviation paintings did much to boost an already rapidly accelerating popularity, with many purchasers of this book later becoming collectors. The first part of the book is a detailed chronicle of Robert Taylor's life and artistic career, generously illustrated with plenty of pencil sketches. The second part of the book looks at his paintings. Each painting has four pages devoted to it containing a description by the artist of how it came about, how he approached it, working sketches and plenty of stories recounting the support given by famous aviators. Overall presentation is to a very high standard. Foreword is by Air Vice Marshal 'Johnnie' Johnson CB, CBE, DSO, DFC.

In 2002 the Military Gallery published a short run of this title in a smaller format i.e. 12 x 9.5 inches compared with the usual 14.5 x 11.5 inches. It has a dust jacket that is a darker blue but in all other respects the book is the same as the larger size version.

Condition: we have a small number in 'as new' condition.
