WELCOMING RESPITE - Framed Collectors Piece
It has been another hard day of ferocious air combat over southern England, but at long last the young pilots of 603 Squadron can take a short, yet welcome respite from the heavy fighting. Soon however, the roar of Merlin engines will fill the air again as another deadly Luftwaffe raid threatens.
Robert Taylor’s masterpiece, beautifully crafted using a subtle combination of delicate graphite skilfully interwoven with subtle hues of the artist’s finest oil paint, rekindles the poignancy of one such moment in this, the most famous of all air battles in history – The Battle of Britain.
