THE GREAT WAR: Printmakers of World War I from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

08/26/2016 to 12/18/2016
Curated by Dr. Mitchell Merling, Paul Mellon Curator and Head of the Department of European Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Organized by Rebecca Schoenthal, Curator of Exhibitions

The “Great War” changed the face of the world when it began on July 28, 1914. The story of World War I and the emotions it elicited are told through prints by British and American artists such as Muirhead Bone, Kerr Eby, Childe Hassam, James McBey and Claude Shepperson. The works depict scenes of combat in France and the Near East, life on the home front in the United States and England, and the war’s aftermath and its commemoration. All of the prints come from the Frank Raysor Collection, a promised gift to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

This exhibition was organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and curated by Dr. Mitchell Merling, Paul Mellon Curator and Head of the Department of European Art with Kristie Couser, Curatorial Assistant for the Mellon Collections.

The Fralin Museum of Art’s programming is generously supported by The Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation.

We would also like to thank our in-kind donors: WTJU 91.1 FM and Ivy Publications LLC’s Charlottesville Welcome Book.
