Painting of a British Sopwith Camel attacking a German Taube, Christopher R. W. Nevinson, 1917

From Wikimedia Commons: The painting is mentioned in correspondence in September 1917 as being re-worked prior to its presentation to the Imperial War Museum: it may possibly have been the painting ‘Taube Pursued by Commander Samson’ shown in March 1915.
