This drawing shows crowds gathered around a train as it departs to take soldiers to war.
It is by Henry de Groux (1886-1930), a Belgian symbolist painter and sculptor. Images of the war that appeared in newspapers made a deep impression on him. 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.
