New Pait1tit1gs for the US Coast 0-uard Thanks to artists Patrick O ' Brien and Peter Rindlisbacher, the US Coast Guard now has four more of its historic revenue cutters represented in its art collection: RC James Madison, RC Surveyor, RC Eagle, and RC Thomas Jefferson. In 2011, in preparation for the upcoming War of 1812 commemorations, the Coast G uard commissioned four paintings from the rwo artists to fill gaps in their collection of art depicting historic ships of the Revenue C utter Service, the forerunner of today's US Coast Guard.
