The Bloody Cortège by Henry de Groux

Description

This is a lithograph depicting a group of soldiers and a wounded man being carried on a stretcher, by the Belgian symbolist painter and sculptor Henry de Groux (1886-1930).

Images of the war that appeared in newspapers made a deep impression on de Groux. The things he saw and his own experiences urged him to create a series of drawings, etchings and lithographic prints about the atrocities of the conflict.
