MERLIN MAGIC - New Release by Robert Taylor
Previously un-released work from the Military Gallery Archive Collection
This previously un-released masterwork Merlin Magic has been selected from the Military Gallery archives to serve as a lasting tribute to this iconic aircraft and all who flew her. With Merlin engines purring in perfect harmony and the warm glow of the morning sun behind them, a pair of Mk.V Spitfires race home as storm clouds gather below. Completed in 1986, this was a period of Robert’s career that included some of his most famous pieces featuring the supreme Spitfire – long sold out masterpieces such as Coming Home Together (1985), Return of the Few (1986) and Bader’s Bus Company (1989).
