Puttalam Elephants
by Robert Taylor
  Add to Cart:


Commissioned by one of the Corsair pilots stationed at HMS Rajaliya in 1942, Robert Taylor’s superb painting Puttalam Elephants is one of many originals by Robert hanging in the wonderful art collection of the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton.

Overall Print Size: 32 3/8” wide x 24 3/4” high.

Much admired by tens of thousands of visitors each year, this painting depicts the unusual tactics as employed at Puttalam in order to keep the land based naval fighters flying.

Operating happily in conditions where towing tractors became quickly bogged down, the Puttalam Elephants provided an invaluable service, and became much loved by the pilots and ground crews.

Collectors will be delighted that we have arranged to publish this much-admired painting as a strictly limited edition.

This superb piece was originally painted by Robert back in 1984 as a commission for the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton, but was never released as a limited edition. 

Of course we now have the benefit of another 24 years of reproduction technology and the outcome is a vibrant, evocative and very unusual piece that will appeal to both collectors of Aviation and contemporary art alike.

We have managed to track down a number of Fleet Air Arm pilots who actually flew the Corsair in the Far East to personally sign the edition, which as we're sure you will appreciate, is not an easy task these days.

THE LIMITED EDITION: 400 signed and numbered prints

The signatures:
Sub Lieutenant TONY MAYLETT
