21-Year Old WWII Soldier's Sketchbooks Reveal a Visual Diary of His Experiences

Thanks to the creative passion and steady hand of then 21-year old soldier Victor Lundy, we have a breathtaking visual record of World War II, in the form of documentary sketches. For Lundy, "drawing is sort of synonymous with thinking," which means we are left with an intimate archive of sketches that unfold one soldier's experience fighting on the front lines. Lundy was studying architecture in New York when, enthralled with the idea of rebuilding a post-war Europe, he enrolled in the Army Special Training Program. By 1944, with D-Day looming, the Army needed reinforcements, which meant that young Lundy would be thrown into the infantry. This shocking turn of events didn't stunt his creativity, though. Lundy, who is now 92, recalls his inability to listen during lectures.

Themes from nature are the subject matter, but brush painters do not try to imitate, copy or master nature. Rather, they appreciate every aspect of it and enjoy each natural process. They seek harmony with the universe through communion with all things. Artistic beauty most often lies in that which is natural and has personality.
