WINGS OF WAR - Limited & Artist Proof editions


Price per Unit (piece): £125.00


Anthony Saunders has gained a reputation as one of today’s most gifted aviation and military artists. Original in concept and outstanding in the use of oil on canvas, his accomplishments not only portray a wonderful grasp of the speed and power required when depicting scenes of aerial combat but also the ability to create breathtaking sky and landscapes at the same time.

Each painting featured in this beautifully illustrated new book is the result of hours of meticulous research by the artist to ensure that it is historically as well as technically correct.

With the foreword written by the iconic veteran of the Dambusters Raid, George ‘Johnny’ Johnson (who has also signed the limited edition book and print portfolio-available and in stock), the artist describes each painting in fascinating detail and the result of his many talents are obvious for all to see.


Each portfolio includes an artist signed, numbered copy of the book "Wings of War" presented in a special slipcase and a matching-numbered, signed copy of the Limited Edition print:


"King of the Air"

Only a handful of Lancasters survived to complete more than 100 operations. Lancaster JB663 King of the Air was one of those.

Symbolically chosen by Anthony Saunders as the subject for his stunning piece to accompany his new book. This resilient aircraft survived the war having flown 111 operations, and is seen here on the morning of 29 July 1944 as Flight Sergeant S H Jones of 106 Squadron brings her safely home to RAF Metheringham after a night-time mission to Stuttgart.

 

Every print in each edition is individually numbered and personally signed by the artist, together with two famous veterans who served on Lancasters during WWII:

Squadron Leader GEORGE ‘JOHNNY’ JOHNSON DFM
Serving as a Bomb-Aimer with 617 Sqn, he scored a direct hit on the Sorpe Dam during the legendary Dambusters Raid

Flight Sergeant STAN BRADFORD DFM
A Mid-Upper Gunner with 57 Sqn he was one of the few Air Gunner Aces credited with shooting down 6 enemy fighters
