Christopher Nevinson's paintings and prints of the First World War are his most enduring work. Before the war, Nevinson had completed his education as an artist in Paris. There, he had shared a studio with Amedeo Modigliani, met the Italian Futurist painters Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and Gino Severini, and familiarised himself with the work of the Cubists. He did not become an Official Artist at the Front until 1917, after he had been invalided out of the Army, but his work became increasingly illustrative and lacked the strong design of paintings such as 'Dog Tired'.
