Robert Taylor has been a prolific sketcher and a painter since childhood. After leaving art school he spent five years as a picture restorer working on many Old Masters and became recognised as one of the leading art restorers. When offered an opportunity to paint for Military Gallery, he became a professional painter. It was at this time that he began concentrating on marine and aviation subjects, and he has since established himself as the foremost aviation artist painting today. Robert Taylor's limited edition prints have attracted a large international following. From the world of aviation such notables as General Jimmy Doolittle, Sir Douglas Bader and top-scoring ace AVM Johnnie Johnson have enthused about his talent. His paintings hang in some of the most prestigious military museums around the world : The RAF Museum in London, The National Air and Space Museum in Washington, The International Air and Space Museum in San Diego, and The US Navy Museum in Pensacola. His one man exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum was described by the museum as their most popular art exhibition ever. Taylor's prodigious knowledge of subject, combined with a rare draughtman's talent and a classic style of painting has brought Taylor to the top of his profession. His canvases are expressive, distinctive, and exude a talent that is nothing short of exciting. His paintings are complete works of art in every sense.

Lieutenant Leefe-Robinsons BE2C, converted to single-seater night-fighter configuration, destroying the German SL11 over Hertfordshire on the night of 2/3 September, 1916. Robinson attacked the SL11 from below, raking it with incendiary fire, before turning and diving past the airship for another attack. As he did so, the airship exploded into flames and crashed into a field near Cuffley, killing all sixteen crew. For this action, Leefe-Robinson was awarded the VC.

 On the afternoon of 5th September 1940, Spitfires of 41 Sqn intercepted a large formation of Heinkel 111 bombers and their escorts over the Thames estuary, en route for London.  Flying N3162 as Red 2, Flight Lieutenant Eric Lock attacked the bombers head on as they began to turn north.  In a fraught combat, Lock was to destroy two He.111s and a Bf.109 on that single mission, setting him on course to become the highest scoring ace in the RAF during the Battle of Britain with sixteen confirmed victories and one shared.  His final total at the end of the war was twenty six kills confirmed and eight probables.

 Despite having sight in just one eye, Major Edward Mick Mannock was to become one of the most decorated and celebrated aces of World War 1, bringing down an official 61 enemy aircraft in just eighteen months before himself being brought down in flames by enemy ground fire. He was reluctant to add shared kills to his tally, so his actual total of victories is recorded at 73. His decorations include the VC, DSO and 2 Bars, MC and Bar and he is depicted here diving on enemy aircraft in SE5a D278 of 74 Sqn in April, 1918.

 The practice of shooting down observation balloons was as dangerous as it was essential and none was more successful than Belgium's Adjutant Willy Coppens of the 9eme Escadrille, Aviation Militaire Belge who downed an astonishing 35 balloons, as well as two aircraft during his flying career in WW1.  He is shown here in Hanriot HD.1 No24 destroying a German Drachen balloon in the closing minutes of the day near Houthulst.

 With dozens of confirmed victories at the end of WW1, the great Austro-Hungarian ace, Godwin von Brumowski was a formidable opponent, his red Oeffag-built Albatros D.III 153.45 of Flik 41J notorious in the skies above the Piave River on the Italian Front. When flying with his fellow ace, friend and wingman, Frank Linke-Crawford, they formed a deadly partnership, the two of them frequently sharing victories as they tore through their enemies' air forces, downing fighters, bombers and balloons alike. Brumowski's confirmed total at the war's end was 35, with many more 'probables', whilst Linke-Crawford was to claim a total of 27.  They are depicted here in their distinctive aircraft, carrying out a low-level patrol late in the afternoon in the Dolomites in December 1917, just weeks before Linke-Crawford left the squadron to take up his appointment as Commanding Officer of Flik 60.  It is popularly believed that the falcons painted on the sides of his aircraft led to Linke-Crawford later acquiring the title '<i>The Falcone of Feltre</i>'.
