SEATTLE – World War I aviation is brought to life in a new exhibit featuring the paintings of Seattle artist Jim Dietz.
The show, Wood and Canvas: The WWI Aviation Art of Jim Dietz, developed by Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, includes 38 reproductions of Dietz’s vivid paintings of air combat, aviators and life at the front during the Great War.
Each of the fine art prints on display at the Museum blend Dietz’s mastery of details and storytelling. Together they immerse the viewer into the military aviator’s world a century ago, when war first took to the skies.
The exhibition also includes aviation artifacts from the period, and the first public display of recently digitized World War I photographs and other works on paper from the Museum’s collection.
Wood and Canvas: The WWI Aviation Art of Jim Dietz runs through Jan. 1, 2018.
