THREATENING SKIES

by Richard Taylor

Threatening Skies Richard Taylor, B-29, Nagajima Ki44s

Richard Taylor's latest painting, recreates an encounter on 19 February 1945. As dawn breaks over the Pacific, a determined force of Japanese Ki-44's launch a surprise attack on a large formation of USAAF B-29 Superfortresses as they approach the Japanese mainland. B-29 gunners let rip as one fighter flashes past, with a second fighter closing at high speed. Chunks of the B-29's port wing and aileron have been taken out in the initial attack, and with another Japanese fighter fast on its tail, the outcome of this particular encounter hangs in the balance.

Overall print size: 30½” wide x 23½” high

THREE veterans of the Pacific War who flew B-29s in the assault on mainland Japan, have added great authenticity to Richard Taylor's new Limited Edition by signing each print. The edition is also signed by the artist, and individually hand numbered.

Lieutenant Colonel RALPH NUTTER
Colonel JAMES PATTILLO
Captain BEN ROBERTSON

Each print is issued with a companion print

With the onset of dawn, Captain Yoshio Yoshida, an Ace with 6 victories over B29s to his credit, together with other pilots of the 3rd Chutai, 70th Sentai, power their Nagajima Ki44s into an attacking position ready to strike the strong incoming force of B29 Superfortresses in the distance beyond. Within a few minutes another titanic clash will erupt in the skies over Japan as the B29 crews fight their way through to the target.

THE REMARQUE EDITION

In the short period of time that Richard Taylor has been published by the Military Gallery, his pencil remarques have evolved into highly skilled pieces of original art. More and more detailed, these beautiful hand-crafted drawings are quickly growing to be appreciated by collectors, and are becoming increasingly in high demand. Two highly restricted remarque editions will be issued, all with drawings comprehensively researched and relating to the Mosquito; the first limited to 25 copies, will each have an ORIGINAL pencil drawing elegantly hand drawn by Richard Taylor. The second, restricted to just TEN COPIES, will be issued with a
DOUBLE SIZE remarque drawing. Full of content, these double size remarques will measure approximately 10” wide.
