Description

A sketch of an encampment with landscape in the background, a road with telegraph poles. ART12647 matches up with this work as the left hand side of the complete sketch and was excised by Streeton from the sketchbook. The verso sketch depicts a view of Amiens with the Amiens Cathedral in the centre of the horizon. In the foreground is an A.I.F. encampment. This sketchbook is from Streeton's first official war artist commission to France 14 May-13 August 1918 where he worked mainly around the Somme battlefields.
