Poster advertising an exhibition of Will Dyson's works, in Sydney, 1982. The poster features a caricature of Remington, carrying a box, with one hand wrappred around the shoulder of a buxom woman, possibly a prostitute. She holds a wad of banknotes in her hand. Will Dyson was the first Australian official war artist to visit the front during the First World War, travelling to France in December 1916, remaining there until May 1917, making records of the Australian involvement in the war. He was formally appointed as an official war artist, attached to the AIF, in May 1917, working in France and London throughout the war. His commission was terminated in March 1920.
