Description  

Pencil sketch on an off-white 6.5 x 7 sheet, done by Sgt. Bob Neary as a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft III, the camp immortalized in the 1963 film The Great Escape. The sketch depicts a POW standing on a Red Cross box, pouring water over a naked man; those who were working to tunnel underground had to shower in secret, as the shower rooms were watched over by guards. In very good condition, with scattered stains and toning, and unevenly trimmed edges. Neary was a gunner in the 450th Bomb Group, 720th Squadron, taken prisoner after being shot down. In his privately printed book of wartime sketches, ‘Stalag Luft III,’ Neary recalled the feeling of liberation after being held captive. RR Auction COA.
