Don Kloetzke The New Rising Sun

A World War II print by Don Kloetzke, THE NEW RISING SUN is an image of what was probably seen from two other escort B-29's-- Necessary Evil which was used as a camera plane to photograph the explosion and effects of the bomb, and to carry scientific observers, plus The Great Artiste which was the blast measurement instrumentation aircraft. 

"The B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, piloted by Paul Tibbets flees at full throttle as his aircraft is illuminated by the glow of the first atomic bomb detonation over Hiroshima."
