The Aeroplane Scout

The Aeroplane Scout, March 1919
(signed, dated and inscribed 'The Aeroplane Scout' lower right)
Pen, ink and wash, 53.5 cm x 38.3 cm

PROVENANCE: Sir Edward Marsh > Contemporary Art Society > Dunedin Public Art Gallery, NZ (1954)
Records from the Dunedin Public Art Gallery note that the original board bore a label inscribed, 'RAF scheme drawn by Sir Edward Marsh . . . No. 22.' This may have been a misreading and the inscription may have referred to the 'CAS scheme', i.e. the Contemporary Art Society. However, the original mounting board is not available for confirmation.
