Robert Taylor is widely regarded as the world’s foremost aviation artist. His first book, THE AIR COMBAT PAINTINGS OF ROBERT TAYLOR, published in 1987, became an instant best-seller and has since sold more copies than any aviation art book ever published. The following is a brief selection from the many fine reviews it received:

Robert Taylor’s is the finest book of aviation paintings yet published.’
-Don Lopez, Deputy Director, National Air and Space Museum, Washington DC.

It is superb in its content and a magnificent production… the book will become a family heirloom.’
-Group Captain Peter Townsend, CVO,DSO,DFC

Following the same very popular large-page format as the original book, Volume Two is an entirely new edition, packed with new paintings and drawings, with interesting new text. Robert Taylor takes readers behind the scenes and discusses events leading up to each of 24 major paintings, providing a fascinating insight into how the world’s most popular aviation artist prepares, researches and creates his masterpieces.

Top fighter Aces, themselves fans of Robert’s paintings, also contribute features for the book: The foreword is by Peter Townsend, and there are fascinating notes on flying various WW2 fighters in combat from Gunther Rall (Me109), Hub Zemke (P-47), Dick Best (SBD Dauntless), James Goodson (P-51) and Alan Deere (Spitfire). This book provides a truly fascinating and carefully researched insight into the world’s most widely collected painter of historical aviation subjects.

Taylor’s original paintings are to be found hanging in the Imperial War Museum, the RAF Museum, the Fleet Air Arm Museum, the International Aerospace Hall of Fame, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and the Australian War Memorial Museum.
