Finishing up the year with this beautiful, action packed rendering of the last battle of Werner Voss in which the great ace finally fell to the guns of 56 Squadron RFC.

Jim has been good enough to forward me another batch of his WW1 and early aviation paintings which I will start posting over the next few days. 🙂

To kick things off here is an image that I have never seen before and what a vista it presents! Lots to look at… lots going on. 😎


Mountain Eagles by James Dietz.

Ditto, stormchaser comments are perfect

Another from the period in question… many little events capture the eye whilst taking in the big picture… what a pleasure for the lucky owner! No prints as far as I know. 😥

And now a slightly different direction… amongst the many images that Jim has sent me, there are several depictions from the pioneering days of aviation which I wish to include in the gallery… so without further ado I offer this little gem for your consideration. 🙂


Le Vainqueur Americain by James Dietz.

The color in this painting is mind-blowing

Well folks, as we near the end of this cyber walk-through designed to show how a Dietz WW1 (and early aviation) art book might have looked… I hope that you have garnered as much pleasure from viewing the paintings as I have had in presenting them to you. 🙂

And of course a big thanks to Jim for digging around in his archives and providing most of the images that have been used here. 😎 :thumbsup

Accordingly, I will leave you with a further small selection of goodies to close proceedings and thanks for looking over the last few weeks. :wink2 congrats1


Downed by James Dietz.


The Future by James Dietz.

This one had to go in for posterity. wink It is the original of the tiny giclee issue of three that Barnstormer presented on page 1 of this thread. 8)


Kong by James Dietz.

And finally, appropriately named, a personal favorite featuring the great ace himself. :happy


Last Word by James Dietz.

I would love to have the original Last Word, a timeless piece

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 giving 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. 🙂


Gone West by James Dietz.

Another print I have, my other comments are enough for this one.

It has been some years since I have been through Huntsville, Alabama airport.
When The Ryder Museum was open, there were at east two large reproductions of Jim Dietz WWI aviation art in the terminal. From memory, they were each about ten foot wide, and were on the wall above the escalators, going down to the baggage claim area. Can anyone tell me if they are still displayed, in the Huntsville Terminal? or which two (or more?) Dietz paintings were reproduced?

I believe they Were. Ryder was in regular communication with Jim about all his originals, prints and copyrights etc. These very large reproductions were probably not transferrable. The graphic reproduction sheets MAY have been papered to the wall like wallpaper… with some kind of a moulding or frame border. Been years since I saw them. Been curious to find out if they are still there and which ones they were/are.

Yes they were…if I recall Frank spared no expense& they were done with a “no dot” spray repro method. As jody knows I did an inventory of his artwork after Frank’s untimely death & they were part of the estimate of its worth.
Have no idea what eventually happened to them.

Which begs my question. is “no dot” spray the same as giclee?
I still have the the only authorized (by Jim) copy of “Yanks Mount Up” of which no prints were made. It is a full? sized 21 x 35 or 27 x 40 beautifully framed. I have it hanging in the bar/lounge, adjacent to my library, where it often draws visitors to stare and admire it, and ignore me. :grin
I just looked at it under a loop and it is a VERY clear and sharp image, down to the smallest detail. and I can see it is sprayed with a “no dot” spray process that is as clear as a photo. I had some other artwork reproduced for him using the same people and the price (in the “just” Pre Internet age) was :jawdrop

Actually, Yanks Mount Up was reproduced as a poster for the WW1 fly in at the USAF Museum by the Great War Aeroplane Association (I think that’s their name). It’s a really nice poster.

That’s one fantastic image. I’d love to see it in print.

A few points

1) I really want that WWI book to be published, make it very limited with a hand drawn remarque. God knows I will pay whatever the asking price is.

2) A big problem, his stuff is so wonderful yet impossible to find. Of course many never became prints at all

3) I want a Dietz Double-Remarque so bad it hurts, I am always googling and checking e-bay……………..nada.

4) He is brilliant
