Description - Art or Memorial by Laura Brandon
The Canadian War Museum is in possession of one of the finest 20th century war art collections in the world. Recalling themes surrounding memory and identity, the ten studies contained herein examine the context of the genre's historical and cultural meaning. \this book will examine the activity that has surrounded the collection's history as the single largest repository of official war art in Canada, thus providing a particularly fruitful site for exploring the construction of memory. Striking full colour images from notable artists transport the reader into a unique time and place, enabling a deeper understanding of the artists and their compelling, often disturbing, but always profound images.
