EAGLES OF THE WEST - Framed Collectors Piece
With the Battle of Britain in its closing stages, Hauptmann Helmut Wick leads a group of Bf109Es from I./JG2 back to base following a sweep along the Normandy coast, October 1940. The ancient abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel provides a fitting backdrop in the early evening sunlight.
As part of his long legacy in portraying scenes from the battle, Robert Taylor, who personally knew and was friends with many of the leading protagonists involved, has created this beautiful work featuring the Luftwaffe’s leading Battle of Britain Ace – Helmut Wick. Providing a fitting backdrop is the famous landmark of Mont-Saint-Michel whose ancient abbey has witnessed many invading armies come and go. Now radiant in the early evening sunlight in a style that only Robert can capture, the abbey’s soaring gravity-defying walls will, in time, once again witness the passing of another conflict.
Complementing Robert’s work and adding great historic interest for collectors, this memorable Collector's Edition print carries the original signatures of five of the most famous Luftwaffe Aces who flew in combat during the Battle of Britain. Making it even more special, our expert team have framed this unique copy to include a museum-quality reproduction Luftwaffe Breast Eagle and an additional four autographs of highly-regarded Luftwaffe Aces to create a stunning NINE signature collector's piece!
