Continuing his popular series of Giclée Studio Proofs on canvas, Robert Taylor portrays Squadron Leader ‘Sailor’ Malan DFC, Commanding Officer of 74 Squadron and one of the great Battle of Britain Aces, in his famous painting HEIGHT OF THE BATTLE. Having already made one diving attack into the force of Luftwaffe He111 bombers approaching London with their fighter escort, ‘Sailor’ peels his Spitfire over for a second attack. Another top Ace, Pilot Officer Harbourne Stephen DFC, is hard on his heels. Below them, typifying the scene as it was on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 September 1940, Mk.I Hurricanes from 17 and 56 Squadrons have already joined the fray.

This superb piece was originally released as a veteran signed limited edition print some years ago and is long sold out, so we are delighted that this wonderful Masterwork painting is now faithfully replicated on canvas using the latest high-definition Giclée technology. 

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs is mounted onto high quality stretchers and fully authorised and signed by the artist Robert Taylor.

Available individually or together with MAPLE LEAF SCRAMBLE and HURRICANE ATTACK as a matching-numbered set whilst stocks allow.
