Moral Support Robert Taylor

What better way to show our support for veterans who fought the Battle of Britain than with the release of the Studio Proofs of these classic editions, in the 70th Anniversary year of this crucial conflict - published to raise much needed funds for the Battle of Britain Fighter Association.

Robert Taylor’s stirring painting was inspired by the late Group Captain Peter Townsend’s vivid description of an event that happened to him whilst in command of 85 Squadron during the Battle of Britain. Flying Officer Jim Marshall, was struggling to keep his Hawker Hurricane in the air after a collision during an engagement - it was barely flying. Townsend stood guard over the crippled aircraft, and using hand-signals guided the young pilot safely back to their base at Debden. It was a typical act of unselfish leadership from one of the RAF’s most highly regarded fighter leaders.

The paper lithographic prints of these two editions can never be surpassed - sadly for all of us, the remarkable pilots who signed them, over thirty years ago, are no longer with us. The signatures of the legendary RAF fighter Aces Peter Townsend, Al Deere, Johnnie Johnson, and Bob Stanford-Tuck, especially in combination with Robert Taylor’s beautiful images, can never be recreated. For Collectors of historical aviation memorabilia, the significance placed on those highly sought-after editions cannot be changed; their value is everlasting and will continue to be more and more collectable for years to come.

Giclee on Canvas - Studio Proof Edition

For lovers of aviation art, the innovative new digital procedure of giclée (more recently used for many of Robert Taylor’s latest works), has now permitted the application of this contemporary technique to complement some of the classic Robert Taylor MasterWorks from earlier times. We can at last release the long awaited Studio Proofs of these memorable editions.

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist to match his original painting, each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs are personally hand signed by artist Robert Taylor and released pre-stretched from the Military Gallery studio’s ready to simply drop into a frame of your choice.

Helpful information regarding our Limited Edition Prints

Limited edition print:

An edition of identical prints, numbered sequentially and individually signed by the artist, having a stated limit to the quantity in the edition. Following publication the printing plates are destroyed. Almost all the aviation art and aircraft prints featured on this website are authenticated with the original signatures of distinguished military personnel.

Artists Proof:

An old tradition of reserving a quantity of prints for the artist's use, usually equal to about 10 % of the edition. In the early days of printing, these prints were the only remuneration the poor artist received. Proofs are signed by the artist and numbered showing the quantity of Artist's Proofs issued in the edition. Because of their highly restricted number, Artist's Proofs are sold at a higher value than the regular prints in the edition.

Publishers Proof:

A quantity of prints, not always announced or issued at the time of publication, usually equal to no more than 10% of the edition. These are reserved for the publisher's use, mostly for donation to Museums, Service establishments, Service Associations, and the like. Quantities of Publishers Proofs, sometimes issued with a supplementary print, may be made available to collectors either at the time of publication, or at a later date, depending upon availability.

Remarqued print:

A print issued with an original pencil drawing by the artist in the margin, each numbered out of the quantity of individually remarqued prints in the edition. The quantity of remarqued prints in any one edition generally is between 25 and 50. Each remarque drawing made by the artist is slightly different, thus making each print totally unique. Remarqued prints may be available at the time of publication, or announced at a later date, depending upon the artist's work load at the time .Please be aware that Remarque prints can take up to six weeks for delivery. An artist remarqued print is the ultimate collector item in terms of reproduced work.

Companion print:

An additional print, usually issued with smaller dimensions, published to compliment a limited edition, and usually issued at the same time.

Matted (or mounted) print:

A print fitted into an acid-free or conservation matt (or mount), ready for framing.

Original drawing:

An original work individually drawn by the artist, completed in pencil, ink, or other medium, and personally signed by the artist. Being an original work each drawing is unique and different.

Certificate of Authenticity:

A certificate issued by the publisher stating the total quantity of prints issued in the edition, confirming authenticity of the signatures, and in the case of a limited edition, inscribed with the matching unique number inscribed on the individual print. Collectors are advised to keep certificates safely as a future means of provenance. All our aviation art and aircraft prints are issued with a certificate of authenticity.
