Allied Art

An artist's greatest talent, no matter his art form, is being able to express the unimaginable, to make others grasp the intangible and to give life to emotions buried in the collective subconscious.

For soldiers and civilians alike, the First World War evoked strong feelings not only of horror, fear, grief, loss, powerlessness and waste, but also of patriotism, camaraderie, joy, love and fellowship.

Here are a few paintings, drawings and etchings done during and after the Great War by Allied Forces' visual artists.
