Period Oil Painting of a U.S. Navy Combat Patrol Boat
Oil on canvas, approximately 16 by 30 inches. The painting depicts a camouflaged U.S. Navy patrol boat coming under attack from enemy aircraft. The machine guns fore and aft are manned on the boat and one enemy aircraft has exploded in the sky above the boat. The painting has the crazing of the paint that is typical of older works in oil. There is surface dust on the piece but the colors remain vibrant.
