H M Brock goes Deutsch



Today we revisit the work of prolific English illustrator Henry Brock, once again in instructional mode. Three examples of German Picture Cards with German language questions on the reverse to test comprehension. Brock has great fun with the rustic costumes, paramilitary uniforms and bulging stomachs of Prussian stereotypes. His drawings are so lively and effortlessly precise – boots and shoes are described to perfection and every figure firmly located in its own space.
