Depicts a portrait of a patient reclining on a pillow showing his left side profile. His pillow and bedclothes are lightly sketched. While ill in Abassia in 1919, Lambert continued to use his time profitably, making sketches of the hospital and people in it, as well as carving a model for the Light Horse Memorial at Port Said (Lambert 122).
