After intense fighting has left the landscape broken and scarred, troops attempt to recover an 18-pounder Gun amidst the mud of Flanders, spring 1918. Helped by the presence of tanks, the British army has advanced into what was previously No Man's Land, while overhead Sopwith Camels patrol the newly-won territory.
Following the highly successful release THE FRONT
, acclaimed artist Richard Taylor has created another powerful pencil drawing as the second in the series. With an unsurpassed eye for detail his poignant image pays tribute to the Allied Tank crews who fought in the muddy chaos of the Western Front during WWI.
In memory of all those who fought with the Tank and Armored Vehicle Corps during The Great War, each copy of No Manís Land
is conservation matted to include a pair of ORIGINAL Campaign Medals which were actually issued to a member of the BRITISH TANK CORPS during WWI. Sourced and collected over a number of years, each medal has the recipient's Service, Rank, Name and Number impressed on them.
Fully certified and authenticated with their history, no two medal groups are alike meaning each print is completely unique and cannot be replicated. With the service record of the recipient included with each set of medals collectors can further research their history.
THE BOOK - RISE OF THE TANK by Michael Foley
Each matted print is issued with a matching-numbered copy of this outstanding book written by military historian Michael Foley, presented in its own luxury embossed slipcase. The portfolio is accompanied by an individually printed Certificate of Authenticity which is unique to each set.
Regarded as one of the most gifted exponents of pencil work in the industry, Richard Taylor will hand-craft an original drawing in the lower margin of each print to create a unique collectors piece.
THE DOUBLE REMARQUES
Specially created for the serious collector, each print is enhanced with a unique double-size pencil drawing, once again finished in Richard's graphite and paint combination.
