RETURN OF THE FEW GICLÉE CANVAS PROOF
PART OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN PORTFOLIO
One of Robert Taylor’s most iconic and best-loved images of the Battle of Britain, RETURN OF THE FEW portrays a loose formation of Spitfires from 92 Squadron heading back to their base after a successful sortie over northern France. As the fighters approach the indomitable white cliffs near Dover, the pilots have decided to make a protective low-pass over a group of Royal Navy armed steam trawlers buffeting up the Channel, operating in their new-found role of inshore coastal patrol. The trawlermen acknowledge their RAF comrades with a friendly wave.
Initially released in the 1980’s the standard editions of these classic prints are long sold out and we are delighted to announce that the un-released Studio Proofs can now be made available. However instead of using the traditional lithographic paper method we are able to take advantage of new digital giclee technology to present these images on canvas as faithfully as possible to the original paintings by the worlds most collected aviation artist.
Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist to match his original painting, and then mounted on to high-quality stretchers. Exclusively limited to just FIFTY copies worldwide each canvas giclée is stamped on the back and hand-numbered, and issued with a highly informative Certificate of Authenticity.
