Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - ART -

A PAINT­ING in­spired by a fa­mous foot­ball match dur­ing the First World War has just gone on dis­play.

Sod This For A Game Of Sol­diers is the lat­est work by Brad­ford-based artist Bob Barker. Known for his nos­tal­gic­styled work, he spent months re­search­ing what hap­pened on Christ­mas Day 1914, when Bri­tish and Ger­man sol­diers agreed a truce and put down their weapons to play a game of foot­ball.

The paint­ing is now at Cas­tle Gal­leries in Leeds and for more in­for­ma­tion go to www. castle­gal­leries.com.
