First World War Art: picturing the unimaginable

On Monday 30 July Pinhey’s Point Foundation presents a talk by Dr. Brian Foss, Director of the School for Studies in Art and Culture at Carleton University, historian of Canadian art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
"The First World War was an event of unimaginable violence and horror that killed or wounded 40 million people. This talk explores how visual artists used their work both to record the war and to try to come to terms with its trauma."
The talk at the Pinhey’s Point Historic Site starts at 7 pm. Admission free. Refreshments follow each lecture.
