  • Framed Canvas On Board
  • 34in x 26in
  • Edition size 195

A signed, limited edition canvas on board by nostalgic artist Bob Barker to commemorate World War 1.

Barker has produced Sod This For A Game of Soldiers, a touching commemoration that depicts unexpected fraternity in the gruesome theatre of war, inspired by the famous football game between German and British soldiers on Christmas Day 1914.

With the deep sandbanks of the trenches in the foreground, torn barbed wire fencing and trees that have been destroyed by bombing, this poignant piece of artwork, painted in the nostalgic-style that this Yorkshire-born and bred artist is known and admired for, is a timely reminder of how humanity can transcend the horrors of war.

About Bob Barker

Bob Barker Art As a Yorkshire man born and bred, nostalgia spurs him to paint by looking back to childhood memories with adult eyes. Memories of the mill his mother worked at as a weaver form a big influence in the images he paints now, as does the industrial footprint left in the Yorkshire mill towns.
