This is the unique original Watercolour painting by Barrie Linklater.

Sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly having communicated French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris, Captain Alfred Dreyfus was sent to the penal colony at Devil's Island in French Guiana and placed in solitary confinement.

Two years later, in 1896, evidence came to light identifying a French Army major named Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy as the real culprit.

However, high-ranking military officials suppressed this new evidence and Esterhazy was unanimously acquitted after the second day of his trial in military court.
