The Rainbow Division Memorial at Croix Rouge Farm – by John Meulkens


The Croix Rouge Farm Memorial Book

John Meulkens, a longtime admirer of James Butler’s oeuvre and author of the book James Butler: An Extended Personal View of a Collector, has written a new book on The Croix Rouge Farm Memorial – gathering an impressive collection of preliminary drawings, photographs, and texts that retrace the history of the statue from inception to completion. These are accompanied by a narrative on the Second Battle of the Marne and the battle at Croix Rouge Farm where the Rainbow Division distinguished itself in July of 1918. The presentation of the statue in the courtyard of the Royal Academy during the 2011 Summer Exhibition and its inauguration in France on November 12, 2012 also constitute an important statement about the significance of this great work of art, and the profound memorial it represents. Dual-language book (English/French).

Proceeds to benefit the perpetuity of the memory and future of the Rainbow Division Veterans Foundation.
