Over There – Over Here: American Print Makers Go to War, 1914-1918

Author: Barbara Thompson
202 pages

Over There – Over Here: American Print Makers Go to War, 1914-1918, explores the little-studied phenomenon of American print makers and their artistic responses to the watershed cataclysm. Print makers in the United States helped to shape the public's grasp of the war, and this volume sheds light on an underappreciated chapter in the history of World War I and American Art. This publication and related exhibition is a celebration of the legacy of American print makers who created etchings, block prints, and lithographs of their experiences in their very individual styles.
