British History (Ron Embleton)
Peninsular Desperation (Original)

Peninsular Desperation (Original) by British History (Ron Embleton) at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: EmbletonRPeninsul (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Ron Embleton (biography)

Date: 1964

This is the unique original Gouache painting by Ron Embleton.

This moody and gripping scene from the Peninsular wars painted by Ron Embleton shows the true devastation, misery and horror of war.

Painted in monochromatic blues as though the sun no longer exists, a group of soldiers do their best to rescue ill equipped women and children by carrying them through the freezing snow drifts and even giving them their coats in an act of unrivalled compassion.

This truly is an astonishingly moving piece, some may say almost too vivid to be published in a children's magazine.
