Notes

First edition, first impression, signed by the author in pencil below the colour frontispiece. "Having gone to France with the Red Cross and been invalided home soon afterwards, he announced that he would be using 'Futurist technique' to express the reality of war in his new work. In subsequent paintings Nevinson confirmed that he saw the Great War essentially as a tragic event. Bleak, outspoken and often angry, his paintings of 1915-16 are among the masterpieces of his career, bravely opposing the prevailing jingoistic tendency" (Tate online).
