”The Kill“ by Georges Schreiber. The final act in a drama at sea. The skipper of a sub and one of his lookouts watch eagerly through their glasses as the victim of their torpedoes up-ends and plunges toward the bottom – one less ship for the enemy to throw against the Allies. The flame of the fire lights a pathway for the sub as she races toward the sinking ship in the hope of picking up prisoners. Georges Schreiber, born in Brussels in 1904, began painting and drawing at an early age and went on to study art formally in Berlin, London, Rome, Paris, and Florence. He came to the New York in 1928 and stayed for nine months and settled there permanently in 1933. In 1943 Schreiber produced several submarine themed works for the Abbot Collection of Submarine Paintings, collaborating with Thomas Hart Benton. Click here for larger Image.
