I must say that I "experience" this horrific episode in the history of human kind very often - right from my now small Ottawa Studio.
I often reproduce images from various public collection and the collection of War Art from the Canadian War Museum is most impressive.
On it's summery 100th anniversary Canada celebrated her immense contribution to this war.
One of the smaller vehicles commemorating that time was an edition of large prints of en immensely poignant images of the ravages of war.

It is a somber depiction, a scene of a morning cold and damp quietude, the sad task of collecting the dead and the wounded.
An image of a bombed city, a painting within a painting, great and powerful scene.
