COMBAT OVER LONDON
by Robert Taylor
During the height of the Battle of Britain, Spitfires of 92 Squadron engage Messerschmitt Me109s of JG-2 in a high-altitude dog-fight directly over London in September 1940. Far below them, bombers of the Luftwaffe attempt one of their final daylight raids over the capital.
Released in 1990 as part of Taylor’s ‘Golden Anniversary series’ this iconic print has been sold out for many years and is much sought after on the secondary market for ever increasing sums, becoming increasingly difficult to find.
Joining the artist Robert Taylor, who has signed and numbered each print in the edition, are six of World War II's most distinguished Fighter pilots who flew during the Battle of Britain, three representing the RAF and three representing the Luftwaffe, making this one of the most significant limited editions ever published.
