Height and Sun

Height and Sun

In Robert Taylor’s outstanding new painting, Hurricanes of 32 Sqn climb high into the morning sky, gaining Height and Sun in an attempt to take the advantage over the onslaught of enemy fighters – August, 1940. Featuring a typical ‘Robert Taylor skyscape’ this new image captures the surreal calmness above the clouds, belying the fury of action and ultimate sacrifices made in those crisp blue skies.

Overall print size: 27 1⁄2” wide x 17” high
