Depicts a seated portrait of an Australian soldier in uniform.
Drysdale's painting 'Soldier' is monumental in its simple composition. Recreating the familiar scene at of a soldier waiting with his hands in the pockets and kitbag by his side at Albury Station, he capture the loneliness and uncertainty of the tired soldier, waiting for the train to take him to his next posting.Hide
