The story behind the painting...


During World War II United States submarines would try to take a firing position ahead of a convoy. If one was sighted it might become necessary to run at high speed on the surface to the desired location for the attack. The submarine would come to the surface and make a full speed 'end around'. It would be convenient if a rain squall could be used to mask the submarine's movement. In this painting an early Gato Class submarine is making for a rain squall ahead to get out in front of a convoy which is on the horizon.
