I heavily collected military related artwork about 15 years ago. This was/ is one of my favorite pieces.
The painting is about 2' X 3' ( see the door handle just above it, to the right) and depicts a WW1 Corporal protecting the US Flag with his M1911 automatic pistol.
The painting is artist signed and dated-- looks like an "11", but I suspect it is actually a "17".
The painting is in an original era paint grained frame with some recent reinforcing brackets on the back.
Any information on the artist is appreciated.
