Witness - Canadian Art of the First World War

Witness – Canadian Art of the First World War  examines how Canadians used art to communicate and commemorate their First World War experiences at home and overseas.

Some, like future Group of Seven members A. Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer and Frederick Varley, were official war artists commissioned by Lord Beaverbrook’s Canadian War Memorials Fund to document the conflict.

Others, like Frederick Clemesha, Thurston Topham and Vivian Cummings, were ordinary soldiers who made small drawings to send home to loved ones, or whose works were acquired by the Fund after the war.
