Grossmann, Walter. SOLIDERS IN A TRENCH. Drawing, Pencil, color pencil and gouache, on thin sketchbook paper. Not dated, but circa 1915-16. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. A few small losses and creases at the edges, some staining and spotting, visible mostly on the verso, else in very good condition.
This drawing was part of an archive of this artist's works. From the materials in the archive we have concluded that Walter Grossman was born in Germany, studied art, served in the German army in World War I, eventually came to America and became a physician in Connecticut. We do not believe that he had a professional career as an artist, but his work shows an appreciation for the art movements of the early 20th Century.
