What’s New?

Monthly Promotion – May 2019

Each month we shall be promoting one stock item.  For May we have chosen to offer a rare copy of JG-52 by Robert Taylor for a promotional price of £1495.

Originally released in 1986 this print fast sold out at the publishers and copies rarely become available on the secondary market. It is universally recognised as the most sought after of Robert Taylor’s works and can command very high prices in good condition.

This copy has been professionally framed and is in pristine condition, having been kept out of sunlight since new.  As it is a glazed item, postage is not available, however, it can be unframed for customers that are unable to collect from our Gallery.

It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the publishers.

Layaway terms are available for this product and others.  Please contact us for details.

Work in Progress snap from Harri

Just received the latest ‘Work in Progress’ photos from our very talented artist, Harri Harrison. Just a sneek preview of one of the photos at this stage, but the original drawing will be available shortly. All of Harri’s work, including many new pieces, will shortly be available to view at our Cambridgeshire Gallery and at the first Duxford Airshow of the season in May.

New Luftwaffe Robert Taylor prints

We are pleased to be able to offer the latest prints, remarques and matted Collector’s editions of Robert Taylor’s ‘Desert Warrior’.

Previously unreleased, Desert Warrior was painted in 1986, a period of his career that included some of Robert’s most famous Luftwaffe pieces such as JG-52 (1986), Ace of Aces (1988), Swansong (1988), The Abbeville Boys (1989), Stuka (1990) and Gathering Storm (1990). Robert fittingly depicts a Bf109 from I./JG27 near their base in north-east Libya, a small dusty village near the coast called Ain el-Gazala, from which they were tasked to protect the Ju87 Stukas attacking the encircled British army in Tobruk, just 40 miles away.

Overall print size: 18″ wide x 13 ½” high

As with many of Robert’s early and long sold-out editions, the prints have been signed by an astonishing collection of Luftwaffe veterans which is now impossible to replicate. Included is the legendary Eduard Neumann himself, along with Aces who flew in combat with him in the Western Desert, creating a historic collector’s piece that is destined to become an instant classic.

THE LIMITED EDITION & ARTIST PROOFS

Joining artist Robert Taylor in signing every print are four highly respected Luftwaffe Aces who flew Bf109s with JG27 in the desert:

Oberst EDUARD NEUMANN – 11 victories
Ambassador FRANZ ELLES – 5 victories
Generalmajor FRIEDRICH KÖRNER – 36 victories
Hauptmann FRITZ KELLER – 13 victories

THE MATTED COLLECTOR’S EDITION

Each signed print is issued conservation matted to include the original autographs of a further Luftwaffe Ace who flew in Africa during WWII:

Major ERICH RUDORFFER – 222 victories

Approx matted size: 21 ¼” wide x 19” high

THE MATTED REMARQUE EDITIONS

With the serious collector in mind, these two very exclusive editions will include a hand-crafted original pencil drawing by Robert Taylor. Each exquisite remarque drawing will be individually created on a separate sheet of paper and delicately set into the conservation matting with all components of the Collector’s Edition to create a completely unique piece.

Limited to just fifteen copies worldwide plus ten DOUBLE remarques – with a much larger and even more elaborate drawing – collectors have the opportunity to acquire a highly sought after original work by the world’s most collected aviation artist.

Matted remarque sizes will vary.
