LAST FLIGHT HOME (Secondary Market Copy)
by Robert Taylor
Last Flight Home must be one of the most acclaimed and well-remembered of all of Robert Taylor’s great MasterWork paintings.
Painted in warm glowing colours and set within the glorious confines of the beautiful English countryside, this is one of the most memorable studies of the mighty Avro Lancaster bomber ever created. The peace and tranquillity of haymaking is momentarily disturbed by the thunderous return of a squadron of Lancasters. All eyes on the ground turn skywards as the great four-engined aircraft of the last flight home make their final approach to the neighbouring airfield after a raid over enemy territory. The men of Bomber Command have come home.
It was these brave men to whom Winston Churchill turned when he saw no other route to victory except the destruction of industrial Germany.
