Robert Taylor’s magnificent painting features Spitfire Vbs of 71 Squadron RAF as they return to their base at North Weald, September 1941, the young American pilots perhaps taking a brief moment to marvel at the myriad colours of the late evening sun – welcome relief from the perils of recent air combat with the Luftwaffe high above the English Channel.
This superb release from the master of aviation art is simply outstanding, a really classic piece. The Eagle Squadrons have reached iconic status amongst collectors and Roberts’s painting combines a magnificent portrait of the Spitfire with outstanding signatures.
