Essays by Jon Mogul and Peter Clericuzio

 

The First World War was the first major armed conflict to be fought not just on land and sea, but in the sky. Airplanes, more than any other kind of armament, had a magnetic appeal for artists as an embodiment of the highly technological and immensely destructive mode of warfare that emerged between 1914 and 1918. Myth and Machine examines how artists envisioned aerial warfare, which served as a source of both fear and wonder, a new vantage from which to depict war and its impacts, and an arena for action by a distinctly modern kind of hero.

 

Myth and Machine: Art and Aviation in the First World War is No. 2 in a series of publications focused on core themes in The Wolfsonian’s collection.
