Corpse in barbed wire - Flanders
Leiche im Drahtverhau - Flandern

Year: 1924

Description: Here we see a fine use of aquatint to capture the rich textures of a horrible scene. With this technique, the plate is coated with resin and given an acid bath. The acid erodes areas not coated with material and leaves behind a porous finish.

Provenance: Der Krieg; #16
