Umm, I have the Seventh… πŸ˜‰

I bought this in 1990 or 1991 from a US gallery, who got it directly from Jim, so I believe it was never owned by Barnstormer.

Wow, this thread just won’t lie down!… Sunny, how terrific to turn up another one! 😎 Does it have a title?

With your permission I’d like to enter it in the originals checklist. πŸ™‚

That sure is a beauty, Sunny! Nope-I never had That one. It would appear to be from an earlier session. I THINK the six I had, were painted around 1992/3. Every one of those six is signed “DIETZ” at the bottom, right side. And all of those had the portrait of the pilot in front of their personal insignia. I am guessing yours was an earlier painting and probably the same size & frame, from the looks of it. I wonder if Jim will jump in here and tell us if they were ever part of the same set, or if there were more in the series. I’d Love to know.
Want to sell or trade it, Sunny? Maybe for a 36 x 46 action scene? or? I have lots of stuff to choose from. I generaly keep most of my paintings for around 8-10 years and then sell them/trade them for something fresh and exciting to study and enjoy, (and give someone else a chance to enjoy it for some years). or trade them to museums.
A few weeks ago, I saw Jim’s beautiful “In The Rough” hanging prominently in the new owner’s home. As we ALWAYS say…The digital image does not do it justice. Stunning!
Oh! ANOTHER thing about this thread going on and on..I don’t see an image of one of my all-time favorite Dietz’ that had a run of prints too. “Gone West.” It is one of the only “prints” that I have framed & hung in my home (Usually givng priority of space to originals) But I actually bought this signed print of “Gone West” TWICE. Years ago, I gave an EAA Oshkosh Airshow vendor a deposit on it, until I got home to mail a check.
Then I lost his contact information. So I went out and bought another one.
If you have ever lost someone, involved in aviation, and love dogs, and WWI aviation etc etc. This can bring hours of meaningful contemplation. Just the sentiment of the dog missing its master, at the grave,,,is SO powerful to me..

So true… the poignant emotions aroused by this painting are staggering. :think… Here it is. πŸ™‚

I believe it has a title, but I can’t remember it anymore! Yes, you have my full permission to enter it into the originals checklist πŸ™‚

Herman Goering (Before he got really fat and started wearing tights, of course).

Fuzzy, you’re right! Still maintaining your perfect score! 8)

Thanks, barnstormer! I fell in love with this painting the first time I laid eyes on it in the Heritage Galleries catalog. I contacted them to order it, but Kathleen Weber, the owner, told me it had already been sold. A few months later, however, she called me to say the original purchaser had cancelled his order, would I still be interested? Of course I said yes immediately! πŸ™‚

I remember it was the second or third in a series of small portrait paintings available from Jim at the time, including one of the Red Baron. It sure would be good if Jim could give us his input here if he can still remember this.

It does look like the six pieces you own, barnstormer, size and frame-wise.

Thank you for the offer, but nope, this is a keeper for me πŸ™‚

It is a bit ironic, that although I’m almost exclusively a WWII aviation art fan, the one original piece of art I own is of a WWI subject! πŸ™„

😎 Jumping in rather quickly– I did Goering sort of in my spare time way back when…. Sometime afterwards if I recall correctly, Frank Ryder commissioned the other 6 with the somewhat optimistic idea of publishing limited art prints (Frank was nothing if not enthusiastic about everything WW-1..)…. events overtook intentions & prints were never made (probably a good thing as sales would have probably been sluggish). Barnstormer can probably take it from here. Many of these paintings were part of the Ryder estate eventually acquired by him. As an aside I tried to buy back Mud in your Eye, one of my favorites but dealing with the Ryder estate so tried my patience that I finally gave up… Barnstormer must have had far more patience than I… but Jody… you really should have held on to Mud…! πŸ™

Hi Jim;
We were friends at the time I got them. I never had any idea that you would have liked to have MIYE back.-so-I would have parted with it (back to you,) ANY way, it seems. It never entered my mind to offer you one of your OWN paintings. πŸ™„ I offered “some” to a another collector, friend of ours, as your paintings are NOT the type one could justify storing in Storage racks.. The ones I have here are hung in my home. (a couple hundred originals of others, are still in the back storage racks for rotation on the walls, eventually.)
As to your final comment, You have done a fine job of ripping open an old gaping wound and pouring in a Large dose of salt! πŸ˜₯
But I take Enormous consolation in the enjoyment of the Dietz’ that are still hanging here and I get to enjoy every single day. πŸ™‚

I am stunned at how awesome many of those pieces are.

I would love a book of his WWI paintings to be published, I would be in line for a copy day 1.

I have a few of his prints, but can only dream of an original, wow.

Great Stuff Guys

Gone West by James Dietz.

I have Gone West (the print, LOL) and for some reason when I stop and take a good look at it it really gets you thinking. In my last place I had it on the wall in the bedroom. Looking at that print always tempers me and reminds me that my life isn’t so bad.

This piece is almost hypnotic.

I also have Last Word in my bedroom another thought provoking piece for sure.

I am already listing some of my pieces FS, once I get enough sold off it will be time to beg at the feet of the master for an original WWI oil……….dream big, why not!!!!!!!!

Maybe he has a cool remarque he can sell me?? LOL

I am working on selling off a few of my expensive prints to have $$ for one original, man that would be cool.

So many cool WWI prints I don’t yet have.

The WWII print “hard day” is really atmospheric as well it would be a nice companion piece to “High Summer Before the Battle” I love the color and feel of High Summer BTW

As well as something to work with “Last Word”

The worm’s-eye-view also reminds me of some of the neat camera angles used in “The Blue Max”.

Talking of “The Blue Max” here is the Dietz painting of the same name which also made it into print. 😎


Blue Max by James Dietz.

Damm nice, love the color (and the Great Dane).

Very noble painting!
