Synopsis

War and Conflict by Jane M. Bingham

Every region of the world has produced artwork inspired and influenced by war. Since ancient times, artists have created images of warriors, brave leaders, and battle-torn landscapes. Often, they have tried to alter their society's views on war through art. Using many different forms of expression, artists have created their own history of conflict. This book explains how art styles have developed through time, and how artists' techniques add to our understanding of their work. The subject of war and conflict is captured in a wide range of media, including photography, painting, sculpture, posters, textiles, and film. The information to help interpret works of art and understand the time in history in which they were created are included in this book.
