Winter's Welcome by Robert Taylor - Giclee Canvas


Robert Taylor's Limited Edition Giclee canvas features a USAAF 8th Air Force B-17 Flying Fortress returning home after raid.

The heroics of the USAAF bomber crews during World War Two are legend. Never before had such an awesome aerial armada been assembled. There where few sights more stirring than a B-17 Fortress on its final approach returning from a combat mission. Aboard, the crew were exhausted, sometimes injured, but after perhaps eight hours of hazardous flying there was always a feeling of exhalation as the patchwork fields of England appeared beneath them.

Robert Taylor recreates those exhilarating moments as a B-17 crew bring their mighty aircraft home. The co-pilot, clearly visible, assists his captain with the landing - the aircraft has taken some damage from fighters and is a handful on the approach. With wheels and flaps down, engines throttle back, the skipper eases the big machine gently down the glide path towards touchdown, amidst the peaceful countryside of East Anglia. A pair of pheasant scuttle into the air as the roar from the engines reaches a crescendo. Even through familiar with the activity of the adjoining airfield, local farming folk stop to admire the great warbirds coming safely home. In a few moments the last crew will be safely down as Robert Taylor’s wonderful English winter landscape welcomes home another American crew.

A superb aviation painting that blends perfectly the contrasting mood of wartime England painted with great finesse by the master of aviation art.

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist to match his original painting, and then mounted on to high-quality stretchers from the Military Gallery studio, each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs is fully authorised and personally hand-signed by the artist Robert Taylor.
