November 1914, Karel Cogge by Jazochromatic November 1914, Karel Cogge by Jazochromatic
Another portrait of a man responsible for the outcome of World War One.  99 years ago Karel Cogge was one of the few responsible for the inundation of the river Yser and halting the German army across Belgium towards France.  Because of the inundation, WW I transformed from a blitzkrieg to a stalemate for four years in Flander's Fields.  And because of that Europe is the way it is now.  The 'What if..'-questions come to mind..  My brother wrote a book about the feat (in Flemish: 'Sterk Water'

Oils on canvas, 50x70cm, 2013.  Original sold! jazochromatic.com, cheers!
