Timed to coincide with the centennial of US involvement in the First World War, the exhibition, The Art of Devastation, openedon January 27, 2017, at the Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College. Jointly curated by Patricia Phagan (Vassar) and Peter van Alfen (ANS), this exhibition explored for the first time on American soil the intertwined roles of posters and medals in shaping public opinion of the war and in steering Americans into it. This companion volume includes six chapters focusing on Great War art and propaganda by experts in medallic and graphic arts of the early 20th century, followed by a complete, full-color catalog of the 130 medals and posters featured in the exhibit.
