Band Concert at Neufchateau

Description
Charcoal and watercolor sketch on paper. A large group of people, many of whom are soldiers, are gathered around a statue of Joan of Arc in the town of Neufchateau, France. The two people closest to the viewer appear to be an American soldier (in brown) and a French soldier (in blue). The band mentioned in the title of the work is obscured by the crowd.
