THE AVIATION & MILITARY ART OF ANTHONY SAUNDERS
Anthony Saunders has gained a reputation as one of today’s most gifted aviation and military artists. Original in concept and outstanding in the use of oil on canvas, his accomplishments not only portray a wonderful grasp of the speed and power required when depicting scenes of aerial combat but also the ability to create breathtaking sky and landscapes at the same time.
Each painting featured in this beautifully illustrated new book is the result of hours of meticulous research by the artist to ensure that it is historically as well as technically correct.
With the foreword written by the iconic veteran of the Dambusters Raid, George ‘Johnny’ Johnson (who has also signed the limited edition book and print portfolio), the artist describes each painting in fascinating detail and the result of his many talents are obvious for all to see.
