DAWN OF LIBERATION - Original Pencil Drawing
A new original pencil drawing by Richard Taylor with FIVE ‘Band of Brothers’ autographs!
Having followed their flight paths across the Carentan peninsular, C-47s of the 439th Troop Carrier Group overfly Sainte-Mère-Église as paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division, the famous ‘Band of Brothers’, descend into a bitter firefight in the early hours of D-Day 6th June 1944. The liberation of France has begun.
Thoroughly researched to ensure historical accuracy, this superbly detailed drawing has been completed in Richard’s trademark technique combining a mixture of graphite with colour highlights on antique buff paper – a subtle ‘Green on!’ glow can even be seen emanating from the windows of the C-47 having despatched its stick of ‘Screaming Eagles’.
Measuring an impressive 27inches wide and 24inches high having been framed to full conservation standards, an original piece of parachute silk as used by the men of the 101st Airborne has been included in the matting. Making it even more special, and adding great authenticity, there are also FIVE original autographs of veteran paratroopers who jumped into Normandy on D-Day and served with this famous unit:
- Private 1st Class Bill Maynard
- Colonel Ed Shames
- Private First Class PAUL C. ROGERS
- First Sergeant Frank Soboleski
- Private 1st Class BILL WINGETT
