'Detraining in England', print, England, 1914-1918
The sight of wounded soldiers being loaded from trains into ambulances by stretcher bearers would have been a familiar one during the First World War – a conflict during which 1.6 million British soldiers were wounded. Drawn by Claude Shepperson (1867-1921), a British illustrator, the print is from a series called ‘Tending the Wounded’, which was published in 1917 with the works of other war artists in 'The Great War: Britain’s Efforts and Ideals'.

If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use just "prints."
