British Military Cemetery

British Military Cemetery, 1918 (signed and dated)
(It is unclear why this date is not referred to in the 1965 Tate Gallery catalogue (p. 23), where 1917 is supported by the comment 'This may have been done while the artist was still on active service and before he became an Official War Artist.' Presumably as a result of this anomaly, Sotheby's suggest that it may have been signed and dated by the artist at some point after the 1965 exhibition.)
