Description

In this tribute to the courageous flyers of the Luftwaffe, these sleek and deadly fighters are seen high over the Channel, glinting and menacing against an ominous backdrop of heavy cumulus clouds, bringing to life the Luftwaffe’s most successful fighter aircraft in action.

Released in 2007 this is quite simply an outstanding painting and vintage Robert Taylor at his very best. Horrido! sold out quickly and has become an all-time classic.
