Signed by Admiral Of The Fleet Henry Leach, Lieutenant John Barber, Able Seaman Wilfred Marriott, Signalman Arthur Deakin, Chief Petty Officer Rupert Stant, and Artist Robert Taylor. 15 June 1942 – a group of Allied ships heading to the island of Malta is intercepted by German E-Boats. Hearing word of an attack, the HMS Newcastle quickly turns on its searchlight, finding the torpedo boat S-56 nearby. Before they can react, the two torpedoes hit the ships hull as the German E-Boats make a quick escape. Damaged from battle, the HMS Newcastle, along with the rest of the Allied convoy, continued all the way to Alexandria. This limited edition print by Artist Robert Taylor is signed by the artist himself, along with six crew members, and makes a perfect piece for any WWII collector. Never Framed & Stored Flat in Smoke-Free Environment. 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!
