An Indelible Mark: British Art of the First World War

Event time: 
Friday, August 17, 2018 - 10:00am to Sunday, November 25, 2018 - 5:00pm
Description: 

Featuring objects drawn from the Center’s Prints & Drawings and Rare Books & Manuscripts collections, An Indelible Mark incorporates images made both at home and on the war front, showcasing a wide range of visual media produced by official war artists and amateurs alike. Seen together, these objects reveal the diverse visual strategies artists and designers developed to record, commemorate, and critique the First World War.

One hundred years on, the issues raised by these works continue to resonate. Far from ending all wars, the legacy of the “Great War” remains current at a time of continuing modern conflict.

An Indelible Mark: British Art of the First World War has been curated by Judith M. Stapleton, PhD Candidate in the History of Art Department, Yale University.
