The art of war

In this gallery, the theme I have chosen revolves around World War II.  In this gallery, you will be able to see some of the events people actually encountered during WWII and some of the perspectives people have on war. This gallery contains many different mediums from paintings to photography.

This work depicts the horror found after the liberation of a concentrations camp during WWII. Alan Moore shows the survivors leaving the camp passing by the lifeless skeletons of the fallen victims.
This art work is a sketch of the landing of Gold Beach on D-Day. The artist, Anthony Gross, drew what he had experienced when he arrived to the shores. I chose this piece because of its story.
This helmet was found in the District of Harburg. This helmet is a ruminant of WWII and Harburg was a preferred area for allied bomber runs. This helmet would have been worn by a German soldier.
This painting was completed in 1945 by James Gleeson towards the end of the war. It represents the effect of WWII; a world of chaos. He merged human body parts and landscape to show the horror of war.
This picture was taken in Paris during it's liberation from the Nazis. It depicts the Grand Palais after a bombing run to eliminate enemy troops.
This painting was done by LS Lowry who was a firewatcher in Manchester, England. He stated, "I was the first one in the morning to sketch the blitzed buildings before the smoke and grime cleared."
This sculptor, called The Babe with Bonnet, was done by Nikos Sofialakis. It was modeled after a infant who somehow survived through the winter of 41-42 when Axis forces occupied Greece.
This photo was taken after Japanese torpedoes attacked battle ships located on the shores of Hawaii right by Pearl Harbor. This attack is one of the reasons the US joined the war against the Axis.
