The story behind the painting...

These remarkable-looking submarines started life under an entirely different guise: originally they were Whisky Class subs (Project 613) but then they were chosen for a conversion project.  This complex work involved chopping the body in two and inserting an extra section to extend the length and create the highly-stylized conning tower, as well as providing 4 internal launches.

Six of these Cold War submarines were produced between 1961 - 63.  Officially known as Project 655 in the Soviet Union, the NATO codename for these conversions was Whisky Long Bin.  

These guided-missile vessels were operational until the late 1970s, then used as training submarines, before being scrapped in the 1980s.
