The men and women of the Central Intelligence Agency, and their allied foreign national agents, courageously carry out their missions in hostile environments around the globe. From the frozen killing grounds of the Korean War to the bloody siege at Dien Bien Phu, to missions above the Arctic Circle and on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and in the capitals and danger zones around the world, these unsung heroes perform countless land, sea and air missions, usually without public knowledge or gratitude.
This collection of original paintings, initially funded by private citizens and corporations depicts actual declassified CIA missions.
Each historical depiction was exhaustively researched and recreated by world class military and aviation artists such as Dru Blair, James Dietz, Jeff Bass, Keith Woodcock, Stuart Brown, Gareth Hector and others. Unique calendar bonus features include photos of points of interest at the headquarters, artist sketches and color studies, declassified documents, photographs of mission participants and more. SECRET OPS OF THE CIA is a history book disguised as a wall calendar. The artwork is on permanent display at the CIA headquarters in McLean, Virginia.
Click on the calendar covers below to view the artwork and reference pages, doing so you will see a “sneak preview” of the full 28 calendar pages for two of the three calendars. The “Second Edition” calendar will have its sneak preview added shortly.
Everyone please note: There is a total of 22 paintings in the entire CIA art collection, less than enough for two full calendars. Out of necessity the Secret Ops 2018 calendars are made up of some new and some old paintings from the 2017 calendar. This is unavoidable. I regret there are not several dozen+ paintings in the collection. (Erik Kirzinger)
