A Portrait of Freiherr Baron Manfred von Richtofen. a.k.a. "The Red Baron". Richtofen had a Great Dane named Moritz who would chase alongside of his airplane when he took off. Once, Moritz got to close to the propeller and lost part of one ear. 

Richtofen had a premonition about his own death several weeks before he was killed and he wrote a letter to his mother telling her about it. Here he is depicted kneeling in front  of  his red Fokker tri-plane and Moritz about three weeks before he was killed in combat on April 21, 1918.
