    Thanks so much for sending me a link to this site! This painting by Kraft has fascinated me since I saw a small black and white copy in a WW2 paperback called Soldier Art. I hope it will be all right for me to put this with the scan of that copy on my flickr page.

    If I can still find his email, I’ll also send word to a gentleman who first saw the painting a decade or two before I did, and who also remained interested enough in it to search online for it (as I did, but without finding it).

    Next, I plan to see what else I can find of his to look at. Thanks again!
