Resurrected from within Robert Taylor’s personal archives is one of the most dramatic studies the artist has ever produced.

Robert sets the scene in the night skies over Osterfeld in December 1944 in which a Lancaster from 626 Squadron is forced to take evasive action as a Bf110 G-4 night-fighter makes a close pass beneath it.

Both pilots are locked in a dangerous duel as they battle to out-manoeuvre each other. The Lancaster, hampered by damage, jinks through the darkness whilst the Luftwaffe pilot is forced to quickly dive away to avoid the stream of tracer emanating from the bomber’s front turret. The contest could go either way.

Only 25 copies of this high quality giclée fine art print are available worldwide. Remembering the duels that took place in the night skies over Europe during WWII, each print is issued mounted to full conservation standards as the centrepiece of this release to include the original autographs of both RAF Lancaster crews and Luftwaffe Me110 night-fighter veterans.
