Abstract:
In this color postcard, a nurse tends to a soldier on the battlefield as Marianne, a symbol of France, stands above them holding flag. She is wearing a long pink gown, her arms are bare, and there is a laurel wreath with gold decorations on her head. The soldier lies on the ground, propping himself up on his left elbow, his gun beside him. He wears red pants, a blue jacket, and a metal armor breastplate and helmet with gold decorations. The nurse leans down over him and holds a metal cup to his lips. Her face is obscured, but she wears a long blue gray dress and apron with a red cross on white armband on her left sleeve. She also wears a large, white cornette.
