A Brush with War: Military Art from Korea to Afghanistan

A Brush with War: Military Art from Korea to Afghanistan, features 64 significant works by artists who witnessed Canadian military history as it happened between 1946 and 2008 opens to the public on December 10, 2010.

Focusing on the creative challenges faced by artists in documenting and interpreting recent experiences overseas and in Canada, the exhibition highlights the historical contexts in which artists worked, and explores their varied and often powerfully moving personal responses.

An exhibition developed by the Canadian War Museum in partnership with the Directorate of History and Heritage, Department of National Defence and made possible in part by a generous donation from the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation.
