Wilkinson was a British marine painter and etcher who produced
about thirty drypoints between 1924 and 1930. He is known for
inventing "dazzle" painting, the camouflage of merchant
ships during WWI. Unlike other forms of camouflage, the intention
of dazzle was not to conceal but to make it difficult to estimate
a target's range, speed, and heading by disrupting a ship's outline.
Dazzle attracted the notice of artists such as Picasso, who claimed
that Cubists like himself had invented it. Ref: Guichard, British
