Drawings by Raymond Desvarreaux


Here is a series of sketches by Raymond Desvarreaux showing scenes of life behind the front. These drawings are from a post-war history volume (La Guerre du Droit) and apparently give a wrong date for the setting. The title indicates '1914' as date, while the French uniforms in the drawings are clearly from a later date in the war. Though somewhat unclear at this resolution, the signature and date on the sketches appears to be 1918.
