World War I and the Visual Arts: The Metropolitan Museum of Art Bulletin, v.75, no. 2 (Fall, 2017)
Farrell, Jennifer, with a contribution from Donald J. La Rocca (2017)
This title is in print.

Published on the occasion of the centenary of World War I, this Bulletin explores the myriad and often contradictory ways in which artists responded to the world’s first modern war. Drawn primarily from The Met’s collection of works on paper and supplemented with loans from private collections, both presentations move chronologically from the initial mobilization in early August 1914 to the tumultuous decade that followed the armistice of November 1918. 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.
