Troops Resting by Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson - 1916

Print Description

Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson - A.R.A. Troops Resting - 1916.

While the Italian Futurists glorified warfare, Nevinson, the only British Futurist, did not, especially after his time on the front. In his autobiography, he wrote that he made war images "without pageantry, without glory, and without the over-coloured heroic that had made up the tradition of all war paintings up to this time. . . . No man saw pageantry in the trenches."

In Troops Resting, French soldiers wear the distinctive steel Adrian helmets of 1915, whose circular form is repeated in their kits, supplies, and food. The work makes visible the mental and physical exhaustion of the French army, which had suffered enormous losses by 1916. - The Met
