Synopsis: ARTIST AND THE WARRIOR, THE: ASSYRIA TO GUERNICA

How have artists across the millennia responded to warfare? In this uniquely wide-ranging book, Theodore Rabb blends military history and the history of art to search for the answers. He draws our attention to masterpieces from the ancient world to the twentieth century - paintings, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, engravings, architecture, and photographs - and documents the evolving nature of warfare as artists have perceived it. The selected works represent landmarks in the history of art and are drawn mainly from the western tradition, though important examples from Japan, India, and the Middle East are also brought into the discussion. Together these works tells a story of long centuries during which warfare inspired admiration and celebration. Yet a shift toward criticism and condemnation emerged in the Renaissance, and by the end of the nineteenth century, glorification of the warrior by leading artists had ceased. Rabb traces this progression, from such works as the Column of Trajan and the Titian 'Battle of Lepanto', whose makers celebrated glorious victories, to the antiwar depictions created by Brueghel, Goya, Picasso, and others. Fully illustrated and accessibly written, this book presents a study of unprecedented sweep and multi-disciplinary interest.
