This is the original Gouache painting by Harry Green.

A tense moment as a British trawler is threatened by an Icelandic gunboat threatening to cut the trawler's nets during the so-called Cod-Wars of the early 1970s. This occurred after Iceland unilaterally extended their territorial waters in order to protect fish stock. This risked the livelihood of many British fishermen.

Art attributed to Harry Green. So popular was this painting that it was originally used as the cover to Look and Learn #604, 11th August 1973 and later #992 14th March 1981. Professionally matted ready for framing.
