Description

By Jennifer Farrell and Donald LaRocca

Published on the occasion of the centenary of World War I, this Bulletin explores how artists responded to the world's first modern war. Ranging from expressions of bellicose enthusiasm to sentiments of regret, grief, and anger, the selected works—from prints, photographs, and drawings to propaganda posters, postcards, and commemorative medals—powerfully evoke the conflicting emotions of this complex period.

In addition to depictions of combat, the Bulletin examines the ways in which artists engaged nationalistic rhetoric; the power and destruction of the modern military arsenal; quotidian experiences at the front and in the trenches; and the unprecedented destruction inflicted upon cultural sites, the natural environment, and humanity itself.
