Print Guimiliau by David Neace


My dad drew this wonderful surreal work after he returned from WW 2. He drew this image from a postcard he brought back to the United States using a Pantograph for the sizing. His style in this blurs between abstract and surreal, the perspective, detail and presentation are wonderful.

My dad was a medic during WWII and he was often right in the mist of the fighting. He spent his spare time drawing what he had witnessed during this time. These are a reminder of what war is all about. This art is now a part of the Air Force Art Collection that was started in 1950. These pieces of art are constantly displayed at military bases throughout this country and around the world.

These are the prints that the Army Art Collection gave my mother when we had the opportunity to view the originals when the collection rotated through Washington, DC. No one in the family had viewed them, since he donated them at the time of his discharge after the war.
