The year 2014 marks the hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the first World War, a military conflict on a previously unseen scale that raged across Europe for four years. French artists – including Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Hermann-Paul, and Raoul Dufy – created numerous prints and drawings that depicted both allegorical and brutally realistic depictions of soldiers, refugees, military leaders, and theaters of war. This exhibition explores the artistic response to the Great War in France.
