Transforming Europe through Artistic Visions of War and Peace
WWI was a traumatic experience that drastically changed people’s outlook on life and their artistic understanding. The painting above, titled “Gassed”, was created by the American artist John Singer Sargent in 1919 and shows a line of soldiers, apparently blinded after a poison gas attack. It is one of many pieces of art which remind us that the world has never been the same since the Great War.
