Goodbye Old Man - Soldier and dying horse during WWI

Goodbye Old Man is a striking image of a soldier bidding farewell to his fatally injured horse. Goodbye Old Man was commissioned by the Blue Cross in 1916 to raise money to help horses on active service.
The artist is Fortunino Matania and it is one of his most famous war-time illustrations. Fortunino Matania (1881 - 1963) was born in Naples.
During and after the war, his work adorned many a history book. During the 1st World War Matania mainly worked for the British magazine The Sphere as their star illustrator, usually producing one full page illustration or more per weekly issue.
He was also employed by the British government and commissioned by individual British regiments. He visited the front several times which allowed him to view wartime conditions at first hand and talk with soldiers about their experiences. From sketches and memory he could then finish a painting, often within a few days

"Rejected by the inventions board. VII -The Gallipoli Shell-Diverter for returning the Enemy's Fire" There were other theatres of war besides he Western Front, and after the disastrous landings at Gallipoli off the Dardanelles strait, the soldiers were force to dig trenches there too. Blistering heat in the summer led to disease, and dysentery killed more men than did bullets. Heath Robinson remembered the soldiers who fought at Gallipoli in his "Rejected by the Inventions Board" series, although this time his contraptions are scattering Turkish soldiers wearing fez hats, rather than Germans in their Pickelhaube helmets. Date: 1916
