This powerful print is pictured on page 175 of the book A Bitter Truth: Avant-Garde Art and the Great War written by Richard Cork. This book was published by Yale University Press in 1994. As far as I know, it is the only book devoted exclusively to the exploration of the impact of the horrors of World War I on the artistic expression of the artists who directly participated in the war.
