Monument To The Unborn War Hero - over 43 thousand views

An incredible 43,991 views as of today on my Fine Art America Website!
This painting (acrylic on canvas, 34" x 40", 1975), done over 34 years ago, in a private collection in Alberta, Canada, had more views than any of my other works combined!
One painting that seems to summarize Rapp’s attitude is his
A large painting which includes scenes of brutality; tyranny; the soldier in various historical periods; images of Hitler; human sculls; alarming pictures of wolves; warplanes overhead and a very bold nude female figure giving birth to what appears to be a crucified figure of man. It is his visual summary of the consequences of war.
Rapp is an accomplished artist, and like so many European artists who have settled in Canada, he has a strong command of modern surrealist imagery.
