As the Luftwaffe lost control of the airspace and started to fall to the Allies, Adolf Galland, once in charge of leading the German Fighter Force, banded together with what he called the “Squadron of Experts”. Known as the “Jagdverband 44” or “JV44”, these men flew Me-262s over Germany in an effort to change the tide of the war. Signed by Artist Robert Taylor and four members of this squadron, including Adolf Galland himself, this fine art print is a true masterpiece, perfect for any WWII enthusiast.

About the Artist:
The name Robert Taylor has been synonymous with aviation art over a quarter of a century. His paintings of aircraft, more than those of any other artist, have helped popularize a genre which at the start of this remarkable artist's career had little recognition in the world of fine art. When he burst upon the scene in the mid-1970s his vibrant, expansive approach to the subject was a revelation. His paintings immediately caught the imagination of enthusiasts and collectors alike. He became an instant success.
Robert's aviation paintings are instantly recognizable. He somehow manages to convey all the technical detail of aviation in a traditional and painterly style, reminiscent of the Old Masters. With uncanny ability, he is able to recreate scenes from the past with a carefully rehearsed realism that few other artists ever manage to achieve. This is partly due to his prodigious research but also his attention to detail: Not for him shiny new factory-fresh aircraft looking like museum specimens. His trade mark, flying machines that are battle-scarred, worse for wear, with dings down the fuselage, chips and dents along the leading edges of wings, oil stains trailing from engine cowlings, paintwork faded with dust and grime; his planes are real!
