Abstract. The purpose of the research is to enrich and preserve world-class historical and cultural heritage, including historical evidence of the events of World War II. The research methodology defines bibliographic, analytical, comparative, descriptive, deductive methods, as well as the method of historical reconstruction, which allowed to clarify some details of the life and work of a prominent historical figure. The scientific novelty of the obtained results is the development of a topic that has not been the subject of a special comprehensive study in historical science. For the first time, information has been revealed about the author of the painting depicting the area where Major General Robert Frederick led the operation to liberate southern France from German troops in the summer of 1944, which was presented to him at the time. The detail established during the research of the topic complements the portraits of personalities and reveals the prospects for further interdisciplinary investigations. Conclusion. Thanks to scientific research methods, the historical fact of the period of World War II is supplemented and described, and directions of further scientific research related to the topic are determined. It is established that the author of the painting, which is stored in the home archives of the family of Major General Robert T. Frederick, is not a German prisoner of war, but a French painter René Robert Jaeger, better known as Le Veneur.
