The exhibition, A Brush with War – Military Art from Korea to Afghanistan, reveals the exciting ongoing transformation of Canadian military art through 30 selected works that present a powerful visual record of the Canadian military experience from 1946 to 2008. This full-colour exhibition guide shows how Canada’s two post-Second World War official art programs have allowed Canadian artists to expand the boundaries of Canadian military art in diverse and important directions, including highly personal responses to the complex realities of Canada’s military operations abroad.
