Painting of Camp Petawawa on wood by Oscar Bendl, 1941 - en anglais seulement

This is a painting of Camp Petawawa on a slab of wood by Oscar Bendl, 1941.

The wooden slab is oval in shape. The scene is of Camp Petawawa during the fall. The internee depicted at the bottom has POW number 933 in the dark red circle of his uniform. This is Lorenzo Venditti who was interned at Petawawa for about two years.

The painting was likely made as a gift for Lorenzo by fellow internee, German Oscar Bendl. Oscar painted other items such as those given to the Prasifka family (related to internee Giacomo Venzon) and the De Marco family (related to internee Carmine De Marco).
