Black American soldier from the WW1 "Allies" series of pastels. 58 x 44.5 cms.
Done between 1917 and 1920, Burnand completed 104 of them. Three are at Moudon and the remainder are in the Legion of Honour Museum in Paris, having been bought for the French nation by Willam Nelson Cromwell. There has been some dispute as to who this soldier is. It is inscribed 'Senegalais', a term used loosely for any black person from the West African colonies, but is believed to be of an American soldier and that the label is incorrect.
