ROBERT TAYLOR THOSE VALIANT FEW AVIATION ART PRINT Battle of Britain


THE GRAPHITE PORTFOLIO

The third in Robert Taylor's NEW series of Limited Edition pencil drawings

The new Limited Edition from Robert Taylor, whose evocative pencil drawing commemorates Churchill’s famous ‘FEW’, the valiant young pilots of RAF Fighter Command who flew and fought in the Battle of Britain.

The Battle of Britain commenced at the beginning of June 1940, and for the next two and a half gruelling months the young men of Royal Air Force Fighter Command, duelled with the cream of Goering’s Luftwaffe over the skies of southern England. It was to become the
greatest aerial conflict in aviation history. Always outnumbered, the valiant young pilots fought with a determined fierce-ness and intensity, and never once did their spirit waver. By the end of September the battle was won, but many had made the ultimate sacrifice.
Robert Taylor, the world’s foremost aviation artist, has dedicated his evoc-ative new drawing as a lasting tribute to the valiant young men who took part in this historic event, and who helped write a glorious chapter in history.
