During her short but violent career the Bismarck became a household name. In her first engagement she sank HMS Hood, once the largest ship in the Royal Navy, but this devastating blow brought down the wrath of the Royal Navy upon the Bismarck and within three days she was also sunk. Robert Taylor’s dramatic painting shows the Bismarck firing the fatal salvo that destroyed the Hood, whose smoke is seen on the horizon.
Prints of the Battleship Bismarck were signed by Baron von Mullenheim-Rechberg, one of Bismarck’s gunnery officers, and the highest ranking officer to survive. We believe that Robert Taylor's piece was so authentic that it was the only print he ever agreed to sign.
