What makes Iver Henningsen´s war experience at the Eastern Front particular interesting is the drawings he send back to his family. Together with the letters they give us a twofold insight in his thoughts and interests during the war.

Iver Henningsen was as painter, but no artist, he painted wagons. The artistic quality of his drawings differs a lot. He never seemed to be able to get the perspective right when he draws landscapes and houses, but he was drawing people and animals with much empathy.
