FLANDERS FIELD 1915

FLANDERS FIELD 1915

Piece description from the artist

November 11 of each year is Remembrance Day for parts of Europe, especially in England and France.The day marks the end of World War I. Red poppies are worn on the lapel to signify the end. "In Flanders Field" is a poignant poem written by Canadian Lt.-Colonel John McCrae. The actual Flanders Field in Belgium was full of trenches and was called "no-mans-land". While fighting raged on, throughout the unattended fields, McCrae spoke about how red poppies continued to grow everywhere. My interest is in the red poppies and how they attempted to sooth the tremendous loss of life. The year 1915 is significant to England for it's great suffering during the War.
