Those already familiar with his work will be intrigued to discover for the first time the secrets of his techniques, and all aviation buffs will delight in the behind-the-scenes stories of life with the ‘Aces.’

‘As a fighter pilot who flew the types of aircraft that Robert Taylor paints so brilliantly, I marvel at his ability. He paints more than just aircraft; he paints with spectacular reality the whole vista of the sky that is the world of the fighter pilot. He ranks with the best.’
