Jungle Rations - Guadalcanal


Howard Cook

(American, 1901-1980)


Sheet: 48.6 x 35.5 cm (19 1/8 x 14 in.); Image: 40 x 28.9 cm (15 3/4 x 11 3/8 in.)

Bequest of John Bonebrake 2012.285

Catalogue raisonné: Duffy and Duffy 204



Bonebrake served in the United States Army during World War II and was sent to Italy, Japan, and the Philippines. Cook served as an artist war correspondent in the Solomon Isalnds, also in the western Pacific, in 1943-44. His powerful image of a soldier on the largest of these islands, Guadalcanal, the site of a bitter battle between the American and Japanese forces in 1942-43, resonated with Bonebrake.
