The fourth son of Camille Pissarro 'Rodo' moved to England at the outbreak of war. Living in West London, he recorded life on the Homefront in a number of witty on the spot watercolours.  At least two  posters produced by the National War Savings Committee (9n 1915)  warned women against frivolous dress in this time of need. One read: To dress extravagantly in war time is worse than bad form it is unpatriotic.
