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.

This Week's Half Price Art

 Surely one of the most irrepressible aces of World War 1, Frenchman Charles Nungessers victory total of 43 confirmed kills and a further 11 probables was achieved despite surviving a number of crashes and accidents from which he always bounced back in defiance of his quite severe injuries. His fame and prowess brought him a personal challenge from his German adversaries to take part in a one-on-one combat. Accepting the challenge, the lone Nungesser encountered not one, but six, enemy aircraft and promptly sent two of them down in flames. In this picture, his Emblems of Mortality personal motif is clearly seen on the side of his Nieuport 23 as he sees off an Albatross toward the end of the war. Nungesser survived the Great War, only to be lost over the Atlantic when attempting a flight to New York in 1927.

1st June 1940 - <i>Pete</i> Peters fights off an overwhelming attack over Dunkirk and destroys three fighters.  Anson MKV flown by pilot officer Phillip Peters was leading a patrol of three Ansons of No.500 Royal Auxiliary Air Force Squadron over Dunkirk at the time the British Expeditionary Force was evacuating from the beaches.  He was flying at around 50ft when his mid upper gunner reported that nine Bf109s were attacking. Dropping to wave-top height the slow obsolescent twin engined aircraft tried to shake off their pursuers.  Two planes were severely damaged and Peters sent them home, leaving his own aircraft at the mercy of the enemy fighters.  It was at this point that Peters was grateful for his 'secret weapons'.  In addition to the Anson's nose gun and mid upper turret, guns had been fitted projecting out of the sides of the aircraft's long 'greenhouse' cabin. The extra guns were manned by the co-pilot and wireless operator. By throttling back and executing a number of skid turns Peters was able to out manoeuvre the enemy and allow his crew to fire on the attackers.  The first Bf109 was finished off with the nose gun as it did a stall turn in front off the aircraft. The second was shot down into the sea.  A third attacker sustained heavy damage and turned tail with the other pursuers.  Peters set course for Detling.  The news of the battle went on ahead of his arrival and he was greeted by applause and cheering of the squadron personnel.  When the aircraft was inspected, only one bullet hole was found. It wasn't until later when he had his parachute repacked that another armour piercing bullet was found lodged in the silk.  For the attack and morale boosting effect for the rest of the squadron, Peters was awarded the DFC.  The remaining crew, Sergeant Spencer, Corporal Smith, Leading Aircraftsman Dillnutt and Leading Aircraftsman Cunningham all received the Distinguished Flying Medal.
