Description
The art print 'Erich Rudorffer Tribute' by aviation artist Nicolas Trudgian offers the unique opportunity in the history of aviation art to acquire an original aerial victory confirmation from Erich Rudorffer's personal property together with the art print. The fading sun makes Rudorffer's Focke Wulf glimmer in golden colors over the ice-bound battlefield. The colorful aviation art print recalls the glittering career of one of the world's greatest fighter pilots who, as commander of the II / JG54, fought in his FW190 in late 1943 over the bitterly cold, war-torn landscape of the Caucasus.

Before he passed away in 2016, Erich Rudorffer supplied a limited number of his aerial victory confirmations from his personal collection. Collectors will be given the opportunity to purchase these high-quality documents together with a copy of the art print. The victory confirmations are presented together with the 'Rudorffer Archive Edition'.

A small number of this art print is also available with Nicolas Trudgian's world famous Remarques as well as a 'Giclee Print on Canvas'.
 
Each limited edition, with the exception of the reproduction on canvas, is delivered together with the pencil print "STORMBIRD OVER BERLIN", which depicts Erich Rudorffer in a Me-262 jet as he intercepts a "Flying Fortress" bomber formation of the USAAF during the final weeks of the Second World War over Berlin. The sheet format of the additional print is approx. 39 cm x 29 cm.
