Regarded as one of the most gifted exponents of pencil drawing at work today, Richard Taylor will hand-craft an original drawing, using his trademark pencil and paint combination, in the lower margin of each print.
The Hurricane was the RAF’s first fighter capable of flying at over 300mph and proved to be one of the most rugged fighters in the history of combat aviation. Hurricanes fought with distinction in the Battle of France and, during the Battle of Britain, shot down more enemy aircraft than its famous counterpart, the Spitfire.
Richard Taylor’s superb new painting hints at the bitter fighting that lies ahead. A few months ago they had been fighting for their lives during the Battle of Britain but for now the snow-clad tranquillity of an English winter brings a brief, but welcome, relief for the Mk.1 Hurricane pilots of 87 Squadron.
