WASHINGTON (Dec. 22, 2016) The oil on canvas painting illustrates Sailors aboard aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) as they prepare to haul lines hoses from Military Sealift Command fleet replenishment oiler USNS Kanawha (T-AO-196) during a Replenishment at Sea on a bright September day. Naval History and Heritage Command’s (NHHC) Kristopher Battles, a combat artist, completed the painting in late December 2016 (Accession #2016-005-05). The Combat Art Program is part of NHHC’s Navy Art Collection, which collects, documents, preserves and exhibits art that is significant to the history of the Navy. This includes more than 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings and engravings consisting of naval ships, personnel and actions from all eras of U.S. naval history.
