Description: 1 Fine Art English Marine Seascape Oil Painting from the 20th Century "HMS Battleship Hood The Last Moments" from a World War II sea battle, signed R.A. Mew The Royal Navy's HMS Hood ship, immediately before she blew up and sank in the Combat of the Denmark Strait on May 24, 1941, is the subject of the legendary World War II Marine naval battle known as "The Last Moments." Your attention is initially pulled to the center, where you can see the ship's main large guns firing erratically from their turrets on deck, with dense smoke rising in response. Large splashes are being made in the water as a result of shell explosions to the right and left. on somewhat turbulent waves. Shots coming in from the Bismarck can be seen as flashes of fire in the backdrop to the left in the distance. Dark smoke-filled sky in the upper atmosphere; below, blue sky in the distance. signed by R.A.Mew, an English artist. Label verso from the late 20th century is dated 1978.
