“Postcards from the Trenches”

There will be an exhibit in Washington D.C. in August and Houston in October called “Postcards from the Trenches.” Instead of showing ordinary World War I postcards, there will be postcards that American and German soldiers painted on with watercolor.

I have seen and even own regular printed postcards from WWI, mostly of France, but I have never seen a hand painted card by a soldier. You can read more about the upcoming exhibit here.
