We're sorry, but this print is currently sold out. If you are interested in locating an edition on the secondary market, please contact the gallery.
Ten years after the attacks on the United States and her allies at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the fight continues. U.S. forces, together with many allied nations have been engaged in combat operations in a multitutde of areas that include both Iraq and Afghanistan.
The U.S. Army War College Class of 2011 commemorates the tenth anniversary of the attacks on September 11th, 2001 with this painting. The class dedicates the painting to those who have been and will be integral to the fight that continues. The subjects in this painting are representative of not only all services of the U.S. Armed Forces, but also include the wounded warrior, the first responders to the attacks, our civilian partners, and a coalition soldier who represents our allies who have stood with our forces, shoulder to shoulder. The subjects are ascending towards a collective destination, and the background includes not only the ten stars symbolizing the 10 years that have passed, but also the colors of the nation we all serve and defend. It is for all who are pictured here that we dedicate this legacy, and though it may be "Ten Years Later - The Fight Continues."
About the Artist
Although the initial focus of artist James Dietz's was aviation and World War I art, he has quickly become a premier talent in capturing military ground action from World War II to the present. James Dietz is a master at capturing the mood, setting, machinery and the people in his original oil paintings. Each event portrayed is meticulously researched to ensure accuracy and historical detail. This attention to detail has made him a favorite of military collectors.
The men and women who are pictured in this original painting are all current members of the Armed Forces and represent the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force, all of whom have served overseas in deployments to Iraq and/or Afghanistan. The two emergency workers are currently employed by the Seattle City Fire Department. The Artist, James Dietz, and the Publisher, American Arts & Antiques, wish to thank them for giving so willingly and patiently to their time, talens, and knowledge to make this print as meaningful as possible. Quite literally it could not have been done without them.
