At dawn on 12 February 1942, a German battle fleet rounded the Cherbourg peninsula. Their destination was Germany. Undetected, the battlecruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, together with the cruiser Prinz Eugen and supporting vessels, had escaped from the French port of Brest, and were making an audacious dash – in broad daylight and under the noses of the enemy – to the safety of the Elbe Estuary. But first they must sail through the Straits of Dover, one of the narrowest and most heavily defended straits in the world.
THE GICLÉE FOLIO PROOFS
Several years ago, thanks to the latest high-definition digital technology, we proudly introduced Robert Taylor’s Giclée Studio Proofs to the world of aviation art collecting. Images from Robert Taylor’s unique catalogue of landmark paintings were now available printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist. These were quickly followed by the larger, display size Exhibition Proofs.
Due to popular demand, we’re now delighted to announce that several of Robert’s legendary images will now be available in a new, smaller format called GICLÉE FOLIO PROOFS!
