A series of images of tanks, printed in green, in various states of camouflage. On a related work, Finlay notes: "Camouflage is Fields and Streams and Trees, In Ideal Form -- which none but Poussin sees. Or to put it another way: In the spirit of literary conceit, one might say that camouflage is the last or final form of classical landscape painting, since it ignores the particular in favour of the general."
