“Conning Tower.” There is no surcease in the vigilance aboard a submarine. Vulnerable to depth charges and bombs, eternally a “lone wolf” on a mission, the submarine must be ready to crash-dive at an instant’s notice. The skipper and executive of “old 204” augment the regular lookouts on the conning tower between submerging.

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 New York in 1928 and stayed for nine months before settling there permanently in 1933. In 1943, Schreiber produced several submarine themed works for the Abbot Collection of Submarine Paintings, collaborating with Thomas Hart Benton.
