Advance/Retreat: Prints of the Great War

Exhibition Website

Jan 24 2017 - May 13 2017

Many artists during the time of the Great War reflected on personal experiences in order to come to terms with the war or to provide unique commentary on the war and the social climate of the time, while others sought refuge from the emotional toll of the war as they looked introspectively and created art with no connection to wartime rhetoric. Advance / Retreat: Prints and the Great War is an Art History Capstone exhibition developed in collaboration between the Art Museum and the Art & Architecture History Program at Miami University. Under the guidance of Professor Pepper Stetler (Art History) and Art Museum staff, senior Art & Architecture History Capstone students spent the Fall 2016 semester curating this exhibition of prints from the Art Museum’s permanent collection.
