USS Arizona

Naval Art Print
James A. Flood. Portrays this famous battleship in happier times in 1936 departing Pearl Harbor. The Navy yard is off her bow and Ford Island, with a New Mexico class battleship, is in the background off her stern. 28"x 21" print.

A ship whose name is written in history, the story of the USS Arizona is well known worldwide. On December 7, 1941, Japanese forces attacked the US Pacific Fleet anchored in Pearl Harbor. All 8 battleships sustained damage or were sunk that day. The most severe loss being the Arizona. The ship was hit with a modified 16" shell. The bomb pierced her decks, penetrated to one of the forward magazines and set off over a million pounds of powder. The Arizona sank to the bottom taking with her 1,177 souls accounting for almost half the total casualties that day. The Arizona was left in place and serves as a permanent tomb for those who lost their lives on her that day. Today, there is a memorial which straddles the wreck. The American flag will always fly over the ship. Approximately 9 quarts of oil leak from the ship each day. The memorial is Hawaii's most popular tourist attraction with over 1 million visitors annually.

Mark Karvon
grew up in the Chicago area. From an early age he was interested in drawing. In High School his course work included electives in architectural design and mechanical drawing. Upon graduating, he attended college and studied aeronautical engineering for a short time.

In the early 1990's Mark befriended the world renowned marine artist Charles Vickery. Through their friendship and Charles's guidance, Mark's drawing skills improved and he began to explore other media including oil painting. Not only was Charles instrumental in teaching Mark about composition and the finer points of creating art, but he also offered much wisdom regarding life in general. They remained good friends until Charles passed away in 1998.

Some of Mark's early commissioned works include small illustrations for advertisements in a local newspaper and portrait work for friends and associates. From 1996 to 1997 he worked under commission for the Illinois Railway Museum creating original works depicting many of the locomotives in the museum's collection.

In 1999 Mark moved to North Carolina with his wife and children. Since that time Mark's portfolio has continued to grow through ongoing commissioned paintings, drawings and technical illustrations for industrial and commercial clients as well as private collectors.

Mark's work is collected by veterans, corporate clients, the armed services and art connoisseurs around the world. His work hangs in public and private collections worldwide.

The Calm Before The Storm by Robert Taylor
Overall Print Size: 33 1/2" x 22 1/4"
Includes companion print The Way We Were - Pearl Harbor, Sunday 7th December 1941
Edition size of 600
S/N by Artist and Five (5) Arizona crewmen:

Ships: USS Arizona - USS Vestal

Dawn had broken to reveal another glorious day in paradise, and on board the USS Arizona and the repair ship USS Vestal alongside, the crew were taking it easy. All next week they would be hard at work preparing for sea, but today was Sunday, and that meant light duties. But within the hour out of nowhere, Japanese carrier-based aircraft would descend upon the unsuspecting Naval base. As the crews register bright red circles on their wings, the blood froze in their veins. They realized that hell had come to Pearl Harbor!

Then, just before 08.10hrs, the unthinkable happened. A bomb from a Nakajima B5N Kate high-altitude bomber penetrated the ship’s armor plated deck and exploded in the forward magazine. Within seconds a cataclysmic blast ripped through the Arizona, devastating the mighty ship which would burn for two days, taking with her the lives of nearly twelve hundred men.

In tribute to all those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor on that infamous day Robert Taylor has created his poignant new landmark painting. The Arizona has since become the focal point for the memorial at Pearl Harbor and this moving piece portrays this proud ship as those who survived would surely like to remember her - in all her glory prior to the attack. 

Also included is the Companion Print The Way We Were - Pearl Harbor, Sunday 7th December 1941. Reproduced directly from Roberts working drawing, this outstanding companion print is issued with every edition of The Calm Before The Storm, creating a fitting commemorative collectors edition for the 70th Anniversary of this historic event.

Signed by Artist and Five (5) crew who were aboard USS Arizona that day.

U.S. Battleships in Action Part 1
Stern. They were at Pearl Harbor on a quiet Sunday morning when America suddenly found itself at war. And, fittingly, they were off the coast of Japan at the end of that great struggle, four long years after it began. They were the older battleships, ranging in age from 18 to 29 at the beginning of World War II, and this is their story. Richly illustrated with 95 B&W photos, six color profiles, and detailed line art. 49 pages, 11"x 8", softcover.

Stern. Continues the battleship story begun in Part 1 (product #5171) with the story of the "Fast Battleships", first built in the late 1930s but expanded greatly in the early 1940s (before Pearl Harbor). The saga concentrates on WWII, but takes us beyond through the 1950s and 1960s right on into the 1980s. 50 pages, 110 B&W photos, six color profiles, and detailed line art. 11" x 8 ", softcover.

CANNON BALLS!!! DID YOU KNOW THIS?
It was necessary to keep a good supply of cannon balls near the cannon on old war ships. But how to prevent them from rolling about the deck was the problem. The storage method devised was to stack them as a square based pyramid, with one ball on top, resting on four, resting on nine, which rested on sixteen. Thus, a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon. There was only one problem -- how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding/rolling from under the others.  The solution was a metal plate with 16 round indentations, called, for reasons unknown, a Monkey. But if this plate were made of iron, the iron balls would quickly rust ?to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to make them of brass - hence, ? Brass Monkeys.  Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled.  Consequently, when the temperature dropped too far, the brass indentations would shrink so much that the iron cannon balls would come right off the monkey. Thus, it was quite literally, cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. And all this time, folks thought that was just a vulgar expression?
