Pretty good condition for near 20 years old, a few minor blemishes that will clean off.

This very original painting was developed in part from ‘naïve’ sketches provided by my client.    Detail from PQ 13, Artic Convoy to Mourmansk

 

Thus we are looking at his impression of what he personally witnessed.

You could purchase or commission a painting of this quality, phone, ask how.

I still have at the time of writing this, the file and notes we worked from including all his sketches and photographs.

 

 

I last heard of it going to auction… I now rather wish I’d bought it back.

The Book :

Years later the painting was reproduced as a book cover at the request of Captain Igor Kozyr (rtd) who was co authoring with an American, John L. Haynes to produce the book called “Frozen Fury“, a personal account of convoy PQ13, ISBN 978-1-4512-0156-7 (http://gangut.su/).

 

Igor Kozyr asked me if he could use my PQ 13 painting, an early example of my art, produced for and with an eye witness, as the cover for the Russian version of the book (ISBN 9-785904-180379).
