Text from 'Living with art: The Alexander Walker collection' (British Museum Press, 2020):
Between 1913 and 1921 Wadsworth made around fifty subjects in woodcut. This example was made while he was serving with the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve between 1914 and 1917 as an intelligence officer in Mudros (Moudros) on the island of Lemnos in the Aegean. It is known to have been printed in eight colour variants; the British Museum also has an impression in greys and black on cream paper (1924,0209.145).
