Physical description

Lithograph depicting a farmer ploughing a field with two oxen. He stands back in awe as a towering vision of Victory rises up into a yellow sky, with French troops marching at her feet. The rising sun is depicted as a golden franc. Victory's wings are outstretched and she scatters olive branches over the soldiers, who carry their rifles and flags aloft. Lettered in yellow with captions. Signed and dated on the plate 'GEORGES SCOTT 1918'.
