Hail to Peace, Christmas 1918, (Hail to Peace) [Unrecorded state]
Signed by the artist's daughter, Jean Bellows Booth (JBB)
Lauris Mason, author of the Bellows Catalogue Raisonne, describes this image as Bellows'" euphoric tribute to the armistice" (p. 112).
In this, an unrecorded state, the darkened eye of the Red Cross nurse has been lightened and appears more as it does in the first state.
