Christopher Nevinson, 1916
Nevinson originally gave his painting of resting soldiers the ironic title ?Sprucers? (slang for slackers). He later retitled the work as public opinion shifted from patriotic enthusiasm to exhaustion.
After a period as a volunteer ambulance driver, Nevinson became an official war artist for the
War Propaganda Department. K2394
