About this artwork

This print is distinguished by a repetition of geometric forms. The angels’ halos extend beyond the image’s frame, thus imbuing them with a sense of action as the angels lead the soldiers into battle. This dynamic movement is enhanced by the zigzag arrangement of their wings, the bayonets, and the soldiers’ uniforms.
