WW I and American Art
World War I had a profound impact on American art and culture. Artists responded to events, whether as official war artists, impassioned observers, or participants on the battlefields. It was the moment when they began to consider their contributions to the wider world, outside the U.S. This book provides an unprecedented consideration of the impact on American artists and the myriad ways they reacted to it. Artists took a leading role in chronicling the war, crafting images that influenced public opinion, supported mobilization efforts, and helped to shape how the appalling human toll was mourned and memorialized. Features some eighty artists--including Ivan Albright, George Bellows, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Violet Oakley, Georgia O'Keeffe, Man Ray, John Singer Sargent, and Claggett Wilson--whose paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, posters, and ephemera tell the story of a pivot in the history of American art.
