William H. RaVell III?

Claus Bergen?

Looks like the USS Pennsylvania or the DD686 Halsey Powell.

None of those.

The artist is mostly known for paintings of tall ships, some engaged in other historic battle scenes, but mostly ships cruising at full sail in open water.

The ship in this painting is one of the same ships involved in the battle that sank the Bismarck, but seen here in a later historic battle in a different theater.

Re: mm2168

Bismark was the clue

Montague Dawson
The George V in Action Against The Japanese

Scroll down here: http://able2know.org/topic/137484-5

I had to find the ship first - the only similar image I could find was Heller's box-top http://www.cook-book.sklep.pl/heller...-george-v.html
Even there, the paint jobs and fit differed from the Dawson image.

Here as H.M.S. King George V in action against the Japanese

They might be different ships. The H.M.S. King George V was the name of a ship and class of ships in WWI and those were all decommissioned shortly thereafter. The same name H.M.S. King George V was used again for a new ship and class of ships in WWII.
