Artist's Description

The painting is a combination of water colors, and ink on paper.

The Sukhoi Su-2 was a Soviet reconnaissance and light bomber aircraft used in the early stages of World War II. It was the first airplane designed by Pavel Sukhoi. The basic design received an engine and armament upgrade (Su-4) and was modified for the ground- attack role (ShB).
In 1936, Joseph Stalin released a requirement for a multi- purpose combat aircraft. Codenamed ‘Ivanov’, the airplane had to be capable of performing reconnaissance and when located to attack the targets. P. O. Sukhoi was working in the Tupolev OKB at the time and designed an aircraft based on a Lithuanian Antanas Gustaitis. Under the tutelage of Andrei Tupolev, the new design, the ‘ANBO-8’ became the “Ivanov” aircraft .

This particular plane is a Sukhoi Su-2M-82, Red 39, of Major A. I. Pushkin, CO of the 52nd BBAP, 1942.
