Into the Fray by Richard Taylor

Into the Fray by Richard Taylor



AN OUTSTANDING NEW PORTFOLIO TO COMMEMORATE THE 70th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN



Squadron Leader Douglas Bader leads the Hurricanes of 242 Squadron in an aggressive diving attack upon a large force of Heinkel 111s approaching the Kent coast, whilst Spitfires from 66 Squadron tangle with the escorting Bf109s of JG52. It is September 1940, and the climax of the Battle of Britain.

Throughout those critical months in 1940, the RAF engaged opposing pilots of the Luftwaffe time and time again and Richards’s atmospheric new painting depicts one such frantic engagement as one of the most legendary fighter Aces of the War, Douglas Bader leads his unit into battle. The edition carries truly outstanding signatures, the like of which may never be repeated, creating a classic Battle of Britain collectors piece.
