During World War I, J.W. Beatty was one of the first four official Canadian War Artists appointed by the Canadian War Memorials Fund. The other three were Frederick Varley, Maurice Cullen and Charles Simpson, each of whom were given the rank of captain and full military pay. After some time languishing in the Whitby base near Toronto, Beatty was shipped overseas to France along with Cullen. He produced a number of sketches of improvised field hospitals, such as this fine atmospheric painting, in which a striking church towers protectively above the tents. Despite the difficulties of war, Beatty depicted the charm of the village and the beauty of the surrounding landscape in his on-the-spot oil sketch, a vision of hope for the future.
