The dead paratrooper has as its source a watercolour study (Dead Paratrooper, near Deventer, Holland). The houses in the background of the painting are the subject of a watercolour, Platoon Position in an Orchard. The complete composition exists squared for transfer in a wash drawing (CWM 82411). The two cows to the left and centre background of this study were ultimately removed and replaced by a road sign.
