Arthur Butcher (b.1877) - 1918 Pen and Ink Drawing, Albert Basilica in Ruins

Item Sold


A finely drawn early 20th century pen drawing of the Albert Basilica, destroyed during WWI. Albert was the main town behind the lines for the Allies during the 1916 Somme battle, and was eventually taken by the British forces in the Summer of 1918, possibly when this was sketched. Following the war, the Basilica was rebuilt. Drawn on wove laid to card. Signed and dated.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing.
