Description: Oil on canvas. Artist's signature "Claus Bergen / München" on the lower right. German destroyer on the high seas firing a broadside, muzzle flash, a further ship in the background. Stamp of office and drawing materials supplier Fritz Müller, Munich on a stretcher bar. In an old gilt profiled frame, the handwritten title "Ran an den Feind! Deutsche Zerstörer in der Nordsee" (tr. "Attack the enemy! German destroyers in the North Sea") on the reverse. Dimensions of painting circa 90 x 150 cm, dimensions of frame circa 112 x 171.5 cm. Excellently preserved painted surface, frame lightly damaged in places, signs of age. Contemporary variant of the motif "Deutsche Wacht in der Nordsee" (tr. "German watch in the North Sea") by the painter's own hand, which was presented at the Great German Art Exhibition in 1940 and was acquired by Adolf Hitler. In August 1944, Hitler added him to the so-called "Gottbegnadeten-Liste" (tr. "God-gifted list") of the most important artists. Rare, large-format painting in which the superbly executed movements of waves, ships and sky impressively unfold in Bergen's characteristic colour scheme.
