Artist's Description

My Great-Grandfather Holly Vandyck served in France in World War I…he was also an exceptional artist.

Recently my father entrusted me with his sketchbook to try and preserve the artworks as the book itself is starting to fall apart. All the images in the book were drawn during the war…some even depicting the actual battles. I have scanned all the images and am trying to think of the best way to present them.

It seems that he had a sense of humour too, many of his images poke fun at war. A sense of humour would be essential I guess under such extreme circumstances.

All the sketches are ink and watercolour on a heavy linen paper bound together in a cloth book.

There is no retouching done apart from adding the border and drop shadow. I am loathe to put these up on the web as it would be devastating if they were stolen…but they are so incredible that I want to share them with you. PLEASE respect that these hold a special importance to my family.
