Product Description

A very good oil on board painting of the D-Day Landings by the renowned artist William Howard Jarvis.

The painting shows the beach with logistical equipment and both a Tank Landing Craft and a Tank Landing Ship at the water’s edge. The painting is done in an impressionistic style and is signed JARVIS R.N.V.R. and dated 1944. The painting has been mounted, framed and glazed. On the back of the frame is a paper label with a dedication ‘To Rear Admiral J. W. Dorling J.N.I.C (Joint Naval Intelligence Committee?) Liverpool from W. Howard Jarvis Lt. R.N.V.R. with deep respect June 1945’.

Rear Admiral William Howard S. Jarvis C.B. was attached to the Combined Staff Planners for the Navy and was instrumental in arguing for increased construction of escort ships to protect the increased number of merchant shipping, from U-Boat attack. He was based, early on in the war in Washington, with the British Joint Staff Mission.

William Howard JARVIS (1903-1954) is an artist specialising in marine paintings, especially those with a military theme. His work is well catalogued and in demand. However, little is known about the artist’s life other than he was a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists (R.S.M.A.) and that he flourished 1917 till his death.
