Wounded French soldier lying in bed in a hospital ward

Preparation sketch by Matania for a work depicting a wounded French soldier lying in bed in a hospital ward that was originally a school. He is being visited by an elegant lady who is seated beside the bed. . Fortunino Matania, RI (1881-1963). One of the most accomplished realistic illustrators and artists of his time, his wartime work was immensely popular and appeared in nearly every major newsmagazine, Allied, neutral and Central Powers alike. Literally tens of millions of readers saw wartime events through the medium of Matania's weekly illustrations and, as such, he played an important role in defining people's mental image of what Great War battlefield scenes and soldiers looked like. Date: circa 1917
