1944 Victor Lundy’s sketchbook

One soldier traces his journey through the war

 

 

 

Γεννημένος στην Ν. Υόρκη το 1923 ο Victor A. Lundy είχε το χάρισμα της ζωγραφικής από μικρή ηλικία!

Κατά την εκπαίδευσή του στο Στρατό κατά το Β’ Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο ήταν 21 ετών. Κατά τη διάρκεια της εκπαίδευσης αυτής σε ένα σημειωματάριο μετέφερε εικόνες από την πρώτη γραμμή της μάχης!

Μετά τον πόλεμο το σημειωμάριο αυτό μας ταξιδεύει και εμάς και μας θυμίζει τη φρίκη του πολέμου!

Born in New York City in 1923, Victor A. Lundy began developing his artistic talents at an early age. His parents recognized his unique aptitude for drawing and draftsmanship, and with their encouragement he attended New York University to study architecture, specializing in the Beaux Arts style.

During his studies, Lundy became captivated by the thought of helping to rebuild Europe once World War II was over and enlisted in the Army Specialized Training Program. With the Allied invasion of France on the horizon, the 21-year-old student was transferred to an infantry division bound for front line combat.

During his tour in the Army, he took any moment of free time to fill his sketchbooks with the faces and scenes around him.

After the war, Lundy went on to become an acclaimed and successful modernist architect, designing a number of innovative buildings including the United States Tax Court Building in Washington, D.C.
