The Long Short Days by Robert Taylor


The Long Short Days by Robert Taylor features Me109s of JG26 during the winter of 43/44.

It was known as the Jagdverbände, the fighter arm of the Luftwaffe, and by June 1940 it boasted some of the world's greatest fighter pilots. With tactics honed to perfection, these battle-seasoned veterans dominated the skies of Europe. But as the war progressed, the Luftwaffe fighter pilots faced another battle, the increasingly desperate war of attrition as the Allied air forces slowly, but inevitably, ground the German war machine into defeat. By early 1945 Allied air supremacy was overwhelming. 

And yet despite the overwhelming odds, from within their ranks came the most successful air Aces ever to fly in combat - names such as Hans-Joachim Marseille, the top-scoring fighter pilot in the West, the legendary Erich Rudorffer who scored more multiple victories than any other pilot and of course the Fighter General, Adolf Galland, who achieved all of his 104 victories in the West. In total more than 100 Luftwaffe fighter pilots are known to have scored 100 or more victories, and 568 Jagdverbände flyers became holders of the Knight’s Cross, Germany’s highest awarded military honour. 

In Robert Taylor’s stunning painting, he beautifully captures a group of Me109Gs from III./JG26, as they return to their forward base after a long fighter sweep along the Channel coast in early 1944. In his unmistakable style, and with inordinate skill, Robert deftly evokes a moment of rare tranquillity amidst the carnage of war as the lengthening sun glints across the frozen landscape during the short days of winter.

Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, The Long Short Days, is signed by Luftwaffe Me109 veterans:
Stabsgefreiter HUBERT-LUDWIG PFAULM Iron Cross - flew Me109s with II JG./53.
Feldwebel HEINZ RADLAUER Iron Cross 1st Class - flew Me109s and Fw190s with JG51 with 15 victories.
