Product description


a pioneering study ... esthetics of Loss identifies and underscores the vital importance of women's art to our greater understanding of the First World War, not least with regard to the manner and extent to which it established and asserted female agency, and how it developed a singular art that documented other experiences of war. (Ann Murray, IHR Reviews in History)

fascinating and timely (History Today)

The author's judicious examination of this imagery, based not only on the art itself but also on letters, diaries and a broad array of archival material, together with other primary and secondary sources, is a welcome addition to the literature of wartime visual culture. (Marion F. Deshmukh, German History)
