Last Flight Home must be one of the most acclaimed and well-remembered of all Robert Taylor’s great MasterWork paintings. Painted in warm glowing colours and set within the glorious confines of the beautiful English countryside, this is one of the most memorable studies of the mighty Avro Lancaster bomber ever created. The peace and tranquillity of haymaking is momentarily disturbed by the thunderous return of a squadron of Lancasters. All eyes on the ground turn skywards as the great four-engined aircraft of the last flight home make their final approach to the neighbouring airfield after a raid over enemy territory. The men of Bomber Command have come home. It was these brave men to whom Winston Churchill turned when he saw no other route to victory except the destruction of industrial Germany.

THE GICLÉE PROCESS
The word Giclée (pronounced geeclay) is derived from the French verb ‘Gicler’ meaning ‘to spray or to spatter’,and relates to the process whereby specially formulated, fade-resistant,archival quality inks are applied by highly sensitive ink-jet nozzles in a continuous spray,providing better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction.

Using the very latest high-technology,and unlike other forms of fine art printing, giclées are printed directly from a digitally captured image in an ultra high-resolution format where there are no visible dot screen patterns. This allows the many delicate and sophisticated tones to be beautifully reproduced with unparalleled accuracy,giving the image all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.

Giclée proofs on canvas are the most faithful way of reproducing an artist’s original painting, the HIGH DEFINITION process delivering stunning images that are virtually impossible to distinguish from the original.

Produced and printed onto fine canvas under the direct supervision of the artist to match his original painting, and then mounted on to highquality stretchers, each of these carefully crafted Giclée Studio Proofs are fully authorised and personally hand signed by artist Robert Taylor.
