As the United States entered World War II, nose art regulations were relaxed, or in many cases totally ignored. WWII would become the golden age of aircraft artistry.
Artwork was typically painted on the nose of the plane, and the term "nose art" was coined.
The nose art was a morale booster for the United States servicemen. A bit of personalization if you will.
This artistry played an important role in American history. I have a personal attachment to this era. I paint pieces for museums and personal collections. Give me a call if you have a personal story you would like to share or a nose art idea you would like re-created. 713-817-8997
