“1940 Armistice Day Storm” is one of the ‘great’ all-time prints by Les Kouba. Included with the print is a copy of the story connected with this great storm which took the lives of many hunters. The story could be framed and displayed with the print.
The image size is 16″ X 21″ and it is pencil signed. At the buyer’s option, I can provide a piece from the Collector’s Edition of 300 or a piece from the numbered edition.
The sheet with the story is not as large as shown relative to the print. It is 17″ X 11″. I enlarged it for this listing so you can see it more clearly.
It was called the ‘Storm of the Century’. This painting by Les is a nostalgic and bittersweet memory of a way of life as he knew it. This was a scene one would find on almost any midwest farm in the 1940’s. In this painting, Les recalls these golden memories of the way it was, and pays tribute to the spirit and integrity of a dedicated and self-reliant people and their courageous heritage. “This painting is their memorial”.
