Sebastian Peake

Peake served in WWII, and in 1945, as an artist on commission, was one of the first to visit the Bergen-Belsen concentration camps. He drew and wrote about the dying prisoners who were still there, too ill to be moved.


...Is this my calling, for my schooled eyes see
The ghost of a great painting, line and hue
In this doomed girl of tallow?
