Stock Number: SC0025 Category:

An original hand painted watercolour entitled “The Good Samaritans” by British war artist Jack Chaddock.

A brief narrative by Chaddock in regard to the painting is included and reads as follows:

“The Good Samaritans” – Stretcher-bearers at the battle of the “Four Hills” – Aug 1st 1943

Jack Chaddock’s art work is usually drawn from his own experiences and has a powerful authenticity and candour as well as being very well executed. He served in the 5th Cameron Highlanders in North Africa and appears to have been self taught.

A number of pieces very similar to the one for sale here are housed within the Imperial War Museum’s own collection. These can be found on their  website, a link to which is included here: http:/www.iwm.org.uk/collections/search?query=jack chaddock
