D-Day Normandy: Operation Overlord

On the night of June 5, 1944, 1,000 ships, the greatest armada ever to set sail, left the British isles, bound for the Coast of Normandy--its mission to liberate Europe. Operation Overlord had begun. For this exhibition, the paintings of three artists have been selected: Mitchell Jamieson, Alexander Russo, and Dwight Shepler. These paintings by the U.S. Navy's combat artists are the visions and images of the greatest amphibious operation ever launched--the Normandy Invasion.
