This beautiful collection features images from the painting The Spirit - Gallipoli Landing 1915 by the renowned military artist David Rowlands. The painting was commissioned by Military Shop and the painting was completed in late 2011.

David Rowlands is one of the world's finest living military artists. His atmospheric oil paintings present a realistic record of the dramatic events of war and have won him Royal favour and commissions from military organisations around the world.
We would like to thank The Australian Army History Unit for their tireless effort in assisting the artist with the historical content.

What the critics say

This painting is the most accurate depiction to date of the dawn landing at Anzac Cove on 25th April 1915. It captures the essence of the action some thirty minutes after the initial landing and strips away the myth associated with this iconic action in Australian military history. Clearly, the artist has researched the subject meticulously, down to the details of the uniforms, headdress and equipment worn that day, the terrain, the shipping offshore, and the light casualties sustained by the Australians around the cove at the beginning of the action.
