Taken from the Imperial War Museum’s collection, this selection of paintings aims to capture the drama, the courage and the suffering of World War I. It features the work of almost 70 artists who became involved in the war effort either officially or unofficially. Many of these men produced some of their finest work in response to the appalling events they witnessed, both at home and on the Western Front. The book’s text examines the artists in the context of their times, and in particular of the great propaganda machine which ground into action as hostilities broke out and which was responsible for commissioning much of their work. Very good copy in dust-jacket
