Original pencil drawing on archival quality toned paper with subtle white highlights featuring troops marching past a stationary British Mark I tank on the Western Front in 1916.
Mark I tanks went into action for the first time on 15 September 1916 on the Somme. Although the large cumbersome machines proved slow, noisy, unreliable and prone to getting bogged down, they achieved enough success in their early engagements for the green light to be given by British Commander-in-Chief, Sir Douglas Haig, for many more to be produced - the age of modern mechanised warfare was born.
The drawing is on top quality, very heavy weight (640 gsm, 300lb) Sanders Waterford Hot Pressed fine art paper stock that has been custom toned with a light sepia hue to perfectly complement the subject matter. It is sold unmounted.
Signed by the artist and supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity.
