HISTORY OF World War 1 

This gallery will show contents from World War I. This was such an important time in our nation I thought I would show a few pieces from the times of 1914-1918. The washed out and desaturated colors show how limited artist were at this time. The images in this gallery will show different but important pieces during this war. The gallery will show how the U.S sought help from the american people down to the women who were the true heroes of the war.

In this poster the U.S Government were reaching out to the American people to help fund the World War that dragged on for a few years. Millions of soldiers from all of the world that were allies to the U.S were needed in this war. Funding was one of the important needs to win the war.
This painting depicted the Liberty Bonds that were used to support the allies in the war that would allow allied forces to continue to fund their soldiers in war. The way the soldier looks sad and in need of help seems to be the marketing pitch of sympathy to get people to donate. Red and Yellow are caution colors meaning a message is being sent.
This poster shows the Marines entering into ground combat. The orange background once again uses the bright caution colors. The bayonet on the end of the rifle depicts the last resort to combat or the beginning of a charge. By the words used this looks to be the beginning of a all out ground attack.
This piece depicts the beginning of the Battle of Dardanelles Campaign. This was one of the greatest victories by Ottoman in the war. The terrain shows the point of view from the native soldiers perspective.
This painting depicts the prisoner of war camps. Prisoners of war are kept on both sides of the war. The U.S and its allies lost millions to war camps. The colors imitate colors of caution in reds,yellows and orange color tones. The direction of the painting also shows the weather beating down on everyone. This would be a sign of stressed emotion in painting.
This is an image of a British Pilot hand dropping a bomb. This action was the way bombs were dropped before technology was advanced to mechanized bombing. It wasn't until the 1940s when rack bombing was brought into the air battle.
This is an image of the medical triage for wounded soldiers. These triage centers would be filled to capacity because of the number of wounded soldiers. The depth of this bay shows how many wounded the triage were expecting.
This picture shows how limited the medical professionals were equipped during the war. There wasn't much light on the hospital bed. The tools were not advanced but good enough to at least provide comfort for severely wounded soldiers.
This picture shows the women of the medical triage. These women played a major role in saving lives of wounded soldiers during serious trauma. The women in this picture actually worked in the medical facility. The women at the top of the image look to be uniformed in a much larger role.
