Image: a view over a devastated Western Front landscape at Inverness Copse, near Ypres in Belgium. The ground is a layer of thick brown mud, from which rise the trunks of shattered trees. There is a lake beyond the copse, and a bright sun rising over the brown-coloured clouds in the background.
This drawing formed the basis for Paul Nash's famous oil painting, 'We are Making a New World' (IWM ART 1146).
Framed watercolour in a window mount.
