"EYE OF THE SUN" by ROBERT TAYLOR
A PORTFOLIO TO COMMEMORATE THE 75th ANNIVERSARY
OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN 1940 - 2015
You can feel the tension in this evocative painting as Messerschmitt Bf109s from 7./JG2 Richthofen head out on a long-range fighter patrol in September 1940. With the sun behind them they hope to launch a surprise attack on unsuspecting RAF aircraft, however these enemy raiders will soon be intercepted by some of Fighter Command’s most determined ‘defenders of the realm’.
