Relics of War Artist's Notes

I invested a lot of emotional energy in those drawings, due simply to the subject matter. They required such focus on detail and mood-of-the-place that it was impossible to stay aloof. I wondered about those anonymous soldiers in the photographs I drew from. Who were they then? Did they live? If so, who are they now? Drawing the last illustration that my father requested (of the helmet on the rifle) turned out to be the most disturbing. As I was sketching in what I took to be rocks and dirt to the side of the rifle I suddenly realized I was drawing a person's body lying in a ditch...very sad. It did make it suddenly so real. —Sophia Eberhart
