With two companion prints- shown here “With his unrivalled flair and talent Robert Taylor's superb image is one of the most iconic portrayals of the D-Day airborne assault of all time….”

It began shortly after midnight on 6 June 1944 when two American and one British Airborne Division started to drop en-masse into Normandy. Their mission: to secure the flanks for the mighty amphibious armada heading towards the invasion beaches. As dawn broke to reveal the bullet-swept beaches below, overhead the skies were still filled with troop-carrying aircraft towing gliders heading for the drop zones.

Robert Taylor’s iconic masterpiece D-Day - The Airborne Assault has been hailed by many leading veterans as the most realistic portrayal of D-Day air events rendered by any artist. Seen crossing a section of the invasion beaches, and closely escorted by P-51Bs of the 354th Fighter Group, C-47s of the 438th TCG tow CG-4 Waco gliders bringing in yet more reinforcements for the 82nd Airborne Division.

38” wide x 24” high

Unsurprisingly the signed lithographic edition sold out shortly after its publication exactly twenty years ago on the 50th Anniversary of D-Day. But now, on the historic occasion of the 70th Anniversary, the most advanced high-definition Giclée technology has allowed us to faithfully replicate this iconic painting onto canvas creating a Museum Collectors item that will provide history enthusiasts with an outstanding piece to be treasured for a lifetime

“These Giclée Proofs are so impressive, they are as close to my original painting….as it’s possible to achieve on reproduced format” Robert Taylor
