Fall of Ostend: Scene in the Gare Maritime   1914

  Original lithograph, printed in colours.
Signed in pencil.
S 391 x 495 mm; I 265 x 365 mm
Very good proof impression printed in three colours: brownish-black, red and grey. From the only edition of approximately 20 signed proofs.

A crowd of refugees is seen queuing through the station entrance whilst in the foreground lie the wounded, on stretchers, awaiting evacuation.

On smooth simile-Japan paper with full margins. One soft diagonal crease and evidence of previous mounting at extreme edge of sheet verso, otherwise excellent original condition.
