World War I: American Artists View the Great War

May 7, 2016–August 19, 2017

Heeding the call from artist Charles Dana Gibson to “Draw ‘til it hurts,” hundreds of leading American artists galvanized public interest in the Great War (1914–1918). Although the United States participated as a direct combatant in World War I from 1917 to 1918, the riveting posters, cartoons, fine art prints, and drawings on display chronicle this massive international conflict from its onset through its aftermath.

There will be two completely different presentations of this exhibition at the Library of Congress. The first will be on view from May 7, 2016, through October 22, 2016, and the second presentation will be on view from October 31, 2016, through May 6, 2017. However, this online version of the exhibition reflects all of the art that appears in the Graphic Arts Gallery during the year.

Great stuff Bandy. I ran into a very similar exhibit called "En Guerre" that was all work by French artists
