The art of war
This gallery shows representation of different wars throughout the ages through art.
The Battle of Genji and Heishi at Ichi-no-tani, 17th century Japan. This art piece had an interesting perspective of showing both sides of the battle and different events that happened.
The Capture of Bako castle on Taiwan Islands, late 18th century Japan. I liked this visual of the battle because it showed an advancement of art in Japan going into more detail on a specific scene.
American Civil War artillery advancement. This piece showed a scene of a battle that most people never really saw or thought about and showed that there was more than foot soldiers in a battle.
American Army introduction art. This drawing shows the love and admiration that the American Army received in its beginnings.
Battle at Gilbraltar 1788. This piece depicts the British army as a merciful force after defeating the Spanish and trying to aid the Spanish officer who is left by his troops.
This art piece of the war in Afghanistan in the late 1800's is a great piece showing the physical and mental toll it had on the soldier's fighting.
Another piece from the war in Afghanistan in the late 1800's, shows another perspective of the invading force being the dominate force and looking down upon the natives of the area.
Great painting of the trenches in WW1. The painting gives us the idea of how devastating the war really was without having to show too much detail.
The Conquest of Jerusalem by Emperor Titus. This painting depicts the invading Emperor as being merciful and taking prisoners rather than killing the enemy, although there are burning buildings.
Another painting of Jerusalem, this time being destroyed by the Romans and instead shows the killing of all inhabitants in the city.
A very vivid painting of the Holocaust during WW2. This piece shows the graphic nature and reality of what happened during the Holocaust.
