|"Eagles Out of the Sun"
DOMESTIC AUSTRALIAN BUYERS ONLY FOR THIS ONE SPECIAL PRINT
This is a one of a kind Robert Taylor Print. Numbered 282/1250, it has been specially framed to include
two pieces of Luftwaffe memorabilia. I originally purchased this piece from Ramstein Airbase, Germany in
2003. Meeting the artist Robert Taylor in person, I requested his personal autograph and greeting on the
glass front of the framed print. Truly a one of a kind collectable.
Formal Print Description: "All of the great Luftwaffe Aces flew the Bf109, and most achieved their
phenomenal success in this supreme fighter, the centrepiece of this famous painting by Robert Taylor as
expert pilots dive out of the sun, into attack.
When this major work was released in 1993, many of the Luftwaffe’s foremost Aces were still with us, and
twelve of them signed this edition. Most have now sadly passed away but their achievements live on in
this outstanding collectors’ piece.
The print is personally hand signed by the following Luftwaffe Aces, all holders of the coveted Knight’s
Cross, and amassing a staggering total of 1763 victories between them:
Generalleutnant ADOLF GALLAND - Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords & Diamonds / 104 victories
Hauptmann ALFRED GRISLAWSKI - Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves / 133 victories
Generalmajor DIETER HRABAK - Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves / 125 victories
Generalleutnant WALTER KRUPINSKI - Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves / 197 victories
Oberst EDUARD NEUMANN - Iron Cross 1st & 2nd Class / 11 victories
Generalleutnant FRIEDRICH OBLESER - Knight’s Cross / 120 victories
