This series of watercolours by the surgeon Charles Bell (1774 - 1882) shows soldiers wounded during the Battle of Waterloo. During his work treating the wounded in Brussels, Bell made sketches of some of the wounds and injuries he encountered, which he later used as bases for these watercolours.
Check the source for more of Bell’s Waterloo watercolours, which give a very interesting insight in the far from glorious aftermath of one of the most famous battles in history.
