Schlaikjer, Jes" "Where Skill and Courage Count" 1942. Beautiful image by Je Schlaikjer, chosen over Norman Rockwell as the official U.S. War Artist. An artillery observer is shown operating behind enemy, calling in artillery coordinates to G2. As is typical of Schlaikjer, the soldier is tall, dark and handsome and effectively looming over the action. Amerian shells are shown crashing down on a Nazi tank column sheltering in a village seen at the bottom. Hard to find. 25x19 mint, conservation backed.
