Anton Kolig, Intermission - World War I

Our intermission mini-set today is not only a break in our series, but it also represents a break of sorts in Anton Kolig's career.  When World War I broke out, he faced compulsory military service, 
but instead of being sent to the front, he was given a job doing art for the Austrian Army.  
The 1916 painting above is Oberleutnant Ludwig Ferdinand Graf, a fellow artist.
