Boer War, 1900 – 1901 – Last Summer Things Were Greener, John Byam Liston Shaw
Image from the Athenaeum. Original is in the Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery.
The painting, in the detailed style associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, depicts the artist’s sister mourning her cousin, who was killed in the Boer War in South Africa.
A contrast of grief and loss in the midst of the ongoing beauty of the world.
