There are few scenes quite so evocative as the vision of a once mighty warbird resting silently in its watery grave, a tranquil underwater world so alien to the world that it was created to fly and fight in. Far removed from the hostile skies of Europe and the long hours of tension, cold and extreme danger endured by its crew, this potent warrior now lies peacefully, its guns silent and quiet forever in the shallow waters of the Mediterranean where it came to rest so many years ago. This is without doubt an extraordinary and moving tribute to those young airmen of the USAAF.
About the artist: Internationally acclaimed and admired, Randall Scott is an artist who will take you on an intoxicating experience through his compelling vision of the underwater world. An accomplished diver, Randall spent much of his youth exploring the Pacific Coast where his fascination with oceanography and sea life grew. His passion for art was fuelled by his father, a highly talented Western landscape artist; and his mother, a natural watercolorist.
Randall has successfully combined these two very diverse pursuits into his work, and is now considered one of the finest underwater and marine artists in the world. Offering a truly authentic and unique vision of the underwater world, his ultimate goal with each new painting is to bring audiences under the water's surface.
