Artists’ Responses to the World’s First Modern War

November 11 marked 100 years since the end of World War I. Artists and intellectuals, many of whom experienced combat firsthand, responded in myriad, often contradictory ways to the world’s first modern war. Students can learn more in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2017 publication World War I and the Visual Arts, available to read online or download (PDF) free of charge. The various sentiments the war provoked—from initial enthusiasm and hope for spiritual salvation, to shock and horror at the brutality of the fighting, to deep mourning and regret—are all present in the art of the period.
