Gas Attack


A very dramatic and powerful representation of the first gas attack against British troops in Nothern France and Flanders in 1915. It had been published in French magazine Le Panorama de la Guerre.

One thought on “Gas Attack

  1. I wonder if the artist drew from reports or first hand accounts of this dreadful experience.

    Is it possible there is a hidden image of a misshapen skull in the center? The foot of the dark smoke in the center has a subtle suggestion of a left eye socket with the right eye under the soldier’s knapsack.
