Liss Llewellyn Fine Art - 20th Century British Art

English School

Soldier with WWI decorations, late 1930's
Unframed (ref: 5665)
Indisctinctly signed, oil on paper
36 x 26 cm.


The soldier depicted in your painting is wearing 1937 pattern battledress and Great War medal ribbons.  The first two are the 1914-15 Star and the British War Medal.  The third which is less clear might be the Victory Medal. From this we can presume that the sitter saw service in both world wars.
