Description
Charcoal sketch on paper of four Renault-type light tanks parked in a wooded area. There are numbers attached to the trees behind the tanks, presumably to number or identify the tanks below. Two tanks act as a focal point at center, framed by trees on either side of them. Tracks from the tank treads are visible in the grass surrounding the tanks.
