Heartache and loss, and now and then a necessary'art'. Munier, a French soldier in 1916 at Argonne. Later on, 2 days after the Meuse-Argonne campaign began, my paternal great-uncle was killed in battle in that region.His parents came from Switzerland, and he was born in America, died in Northern France not long before WW1 ended, and not far from his own grandparent's home in Switzerland. I found the frames in France. The old photo of German soldiers in Argonne, 1916, gives little view of the devastation they wrought, and of their own demise by war's end. Who could have predicted the Americans could end it on that very battlefield, allies to those many other Nation's soldiers they joined to fight. Very good to excellent for age and type. I've never been drawn to trench art, until this pair of frames. The work is quite incredible. The history matching them, also incredible.
Spanish Flu, other diseases of a long drawn out battle front; bullets and artillery flying. And this man made these works of art. It is visible that they were made to have easel stand at backside.Made or never finished, who knows. There are tabs to hold in a photo and a cover glass if desired. Measurements are noted on our photos.
