Cover Art by Tinning – 2010

At right is the cover of a book published by The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies, Wilfred Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario  in 2010. The watercolour “A Gun That Caused Some Trouble.” is similar to Tinning’s oil on canvas “The Gothic Line – Tomba di Pesaro” which was printed opposite Page 150 in The Canadian Army 1939-1945: An Official Historical Summary  (C.P. Stacey, King’s Printer, Ottawa, 1948). “The reproduction of your painting adds a great deal to the book” [Ref.: Letter Stacey to Tinning, 26 May, 1946.]
