Fine pair of original monochrome watercolor paintings, each 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" (sight), both depicting German U-boat scenes of World War I. The first, titled "Nachtfahrt" ("Night Patrol"), depicts a U-boat cruising on the surface at night beneath a partially-obscured moon, with several crew members on watch in the conning tower. The second, titled "Barkschiff u. U. Boat angehalten", shows a partially0submerged U-boat approaching a black out sailing ship, again under an obscured moon. Both images bear the artist's monogram "HG" and the date "1920" in white paint, while the mats each bears the title of the image, artist's signature "H. Grosche" and the date "1920" in pencil. Both are mounted in gilt wood frames, with minor foxing to the mats, else very good. Two pieces. Provenance: The War Museum, New York.
