American painter George Ault 1891- 1948  liked the poetry of "nightscapes"

More of his work here , together with some from his better known contemporaries: Andrew Wyeth, Rockwell Kent and Edward Hopper.

*****
Panzer: Sdkfz 9 "FAMO"
Not really a panzer since it was neither armed nor  armoured, but I couldn't resist this photo of both the Fuehrer and the Reichsmarchall, examining the impressive bulk of the vehicle.
The photo must have been taken pre-WWII since Goering is wearing only his Word War One awards.
The Sdkfz 9 seems to have been painted in one of the camouflage schemes sometimes used on Wehrmacht vehicles in the years leading up to WWII.
