Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $1,482.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Gorgeous original painting by artist R. G. Smith, oil on canvas, 45.5 x 33.75, depicting an overhead aerial view of an in-flight United Airlines DC–9 aircraft. Painting is signed in gray paint in the lower right corner, “R. G. Smith.” Reverse of frame bears an ownership label belonging to William Losch, a former employee of the McDonnell Douglas Corporation. Cloth-matted and framed. In fine condition. A self-taught artist who specialized in painting military and civilian aircraft, Smith worked for Douglas Aircraft for two decades as a configuration engineer involved in the development of Navy combat aircraft such as the SBD Dauntless, AD Skyraider, A-3D Skywarrior, F-4D Skyray, and his personal favorite, the A-4D Skyhawk. With over 2,000 paintings to his credit, Smith is considered the foremost artist within military circles, and is displayed in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, the Pentagon, and the National Museum of Naval Aviation. An incredible piece from the ‘the old master of the sky.’
