Weaving through clouds, the P-38s headed out on yet another mission. This aircraft was flown by a Medal of Honor recipient, and was credited with many of the American victories within the Pacific Theatre. With large-scale production of this airplane lasting from Pearl Harbor to V-J Day, it was nicknamed by the German’s the “fork-tailed devil”. Signed by Artist William S. Phillips, this fine art print makes a great addition to any WWII collections.
This print has been SOLD OUT for years and is only available as a Secondary Market offering.
Never Framed & Stored Flat in Smoke-Free Environment.
About the Artist:
“Aviation was my first artistic love,” says William S. Phillips, “but my true, enduring love remains my Christian faith, home and family. So it is my pleasure to combine all of it in my work. The historical aviation subjects, I research; the contemporary and nostalgic subjects, I live.”
Phillips grew up loving art but never thought he could make it his livelihood. At college he majored in criminology, and he had been accepted into law school when four of his paintings were sold at an airport restaurant. That was all the incentive he needed to begin his work as a fine art painter.
Bill Phillips is now the aviation artist of choice for many American heroes and the nostalgic landscape artist of choice for many collectors. Bill’s strengths as a landscape painter are what gave him an edge in the aviation field: respect and reverence for a time and place. When one sees his aviation pieces, thoughts are about the courageous individuals who risked their lives for our freedom. In Bill’s nostalgic works, the viewer understands fully what that freedom is... the precious values that make life worth living.
