The Art of War: New Zealand Artists in the Field 1939-1945

Author(s): Jenny Haworth

Second World War | Rare Books

In the first book of its kind, author Jenny Haworth shows World War II through the eyes of five of New Zealand's commissioned war artists - Peter McIntyre, Austen Deans, Russell Clark, Allan Barns-Graham and John McIndoe. Stationed to the areas where New Zealand soldiers were fighting in the Mediterranean, North Africa, the Middle East, the Pacific and Europe, these five men saw it as their duty to depict the war in line with the government's attempt to reassure those at home. Beautifully illustrated throughout with large full-colour reproductions of each artist's work, as well as numerous drawings and photos. 224 pages 248 x 248 mm First published September 2007.
