Nothing But The Clouds Unchanged - Artists in World War I, Hardback Book

Nothing But The Clouds Unchanged - Artists in World War I Hardback


This is a fascinating and superbly illustrated look at how the First World War influenced an entire generation of visual artists.

Much of how WWI is understood today is rooted in the artistic depictions of the brutal violence and extensive destruction that marked the conflict.

Nothing but the Clouds Unchanged examines how the physical and psychological devastation of the war altered the course of 20th-century artistic Modernism.

Following the lives and works of fourteen artists before, during, and after the war, this book demonstrates how the conflict and the resulting trauma actively shaped artistic production.

Materials from the Getty Research Institute's special collections, including letters, popular journals, posters, sketches, books, propaganda, and photographs - situate the works of the artists within the historical context, both personal and cultural, in which they were created.
