Campbell Dodgson, C.B.E., Keeper of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum wrote: " Death Awed is the next. Our illustration shows what makes him halt on his way along the duck-board through some water-logged desert of France or Flanders. The composition is simple and masterly; nothing could be more tragic, more eloquent of the horror of utter loneliness that war has left behind it." Print Collector's Quarterly 8 (1921): 325.
