In 1918, Alfred Munnings was invited to join the Canadian War Memorials Fund to capture a visual record of the work of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade and the Canadian Forestry Corps in France. Munnings would later credit his time with the Fund in helping to further develop his career as an artist. Join Dr. Teresa Iacobelli for a guided tour where you will explore the work of Alfred Munnings through 43 of his wartime paintings, and examine what these pieces can tell us about the work and daily lives of members of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade and Forestry Corps during the First World War.
