'The Zeppelin Triumph: Casualty of War', 1916. Artist: Louis Raemaekers
'The Zeppelin Triumph: Casualty of War', 1916. Plate 43 from The Great War: A Neutral's Indictment by Louis Raemaekers. The Dutch graphic artist Louis Raemaekers (1869-1956) produced fiercely anti-German cartoons during the First World War. The Germans offered a substantial reward for him, dead or alive, and the Dutch government, under pressure from Germany, placed Raemaekers on trial on a charge of endangering Dutch neutrality. He was acquitted, but fled to England because of the bounty on his head.
