The Jewish Chronicle - - Front Page -

Dis­tin­guished First World War poet Isaac Rosen­berg’s renowned mas­ter­piece, “Self-por­trait in steel hel­met” has been ac­quired by the Ben Uri Gallery, thanks to grants from the Art Fund and the MLA/V&A Pur­chase Grant Fund. Rosen­berg, an artist as well as a writer, made the chalk draw­ing on a brown pa­per bag as he fought in the trenches in 1916. He was killed in com­bat two years later.
