Museums: Art and War - Australia, Britain and Canada in the Second World War

"Nations go to war, but it is their citizens who experience it. This experience, social War, huh, what's it good for? and individual, needs to be both recorded and interpreted. Journalists, photographers, and filmmakers record, and to an extent interpret, historical events. But artists provide a powerful insight into these events through their particular way of seeing the world....Photographs and film, stories and documents, can all tell us about the reality of war; great war art not only shows it to us, it does so with unmediated appeal and in ways that can move us profoundly." -- from the website. <>
