'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'.

Glossary:

Glossary: print

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use just "prints."
