This is an interesting historical image made by the English artist, Sir George Clausen.
It is signed and dated in the impression.
It is entitled The Reconstruction of Belgium - and was published as part of the series 'The Great War: Britain's Efforts and Ideals', published by the Ministry of Information in 1917.
The lithograph shows builders at work restoring the ruinous buildings damaged in WWI.
In the foreground, there are three workers on scaffolding discussing markings on a stone. A fourth worker is on a higher level and waits to be passed the stone. Part of the classical building being reconstructed is visible. In the distance, another building is being rebuilt, and others remain in ruins. A large crowd fills the space between them.
It is being sold unmounted and unframed.
The print is in good condition and is a nice large size measuring 68 x 43.3 cm
An impression of this print is in the collection of the Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, and of course in the Imperial War Museum in London.
It will be sent to you in a sturdy tube in the UK - this will cost £10 Recorded First Class Post and applied to your order at the checkout.
Was surprised to come across this and am thrilled with the lithograph, it’s gone to be framed and can’t wait to have it on my wall. Service and contact was fantastic and the lithograph and other picture perfectly wrapped
