Richard's superb masterwork portrays the iconic Bf109 at its greatest – during the summer of 1940. With Poland crushed and the Battle of France now over, the Battle of Britain has begun. Yet amidst the fury of war tranquillity reigns over the French countryside as a pair of Bf109s prepare to touch down at a forward airfield.
Few aviation artists come close to Richard’s extraordinary ability with pencil and paint which is why his drawings are highly prized by collectors. Completed in his trademark technique using a mixture of graphite with white highlights on buff colored paper, to create a unique 'sepia' effect, this stunning piece emphasizes the amazing standards which Richard has achieved.
