From the massive canvases painted by official war artists to the tiny personal sketches by amateur soldiers, Witness – Canadian Art of the First World War examines how Canadians captured their First World War experiences in art, both at home and overseas. This souvenir catalogue showcases 56 oil paintings, watercolours, prints and sketches by 52 artists in full colour. As they did when they were produced, these works help us understand and appreciate the unprecedented contributions and sacrifices Canadians made between 1914 and 1918.
