Capital ships bombard Salerno
One of a group of eleven oil paintings by Eurich, an official war artist, allocated to the National Maritime Museum after the Second World War. The artist claimed to have painted this work following an inaccurate report of the bombardment of Salerno, although he could not write an account of the event for security reasons. He was under the impression that he had been commissioned by the War Artists' Advisory Committee to paint a work showing the Allied bombardment of the Salerno landings. The subjects of the painting appear to be King George V class ships. The bombardment was a major factor in the Allied landings' success and thus an appropriate subject for a commission.
