Witness – Canadian Art of the First World War examines how Canadians captured their First World War experiences in art, both at home and overseas, whether as official war artists or as soldiers in the field. From massive canvases completed in studios in England and Canada during and immediately after the war, to intimate sketches and drawings made in trenches and prisoner-of-war camps, this innovative exhibition will show never-before exhibited works and expand our visual understanding of the personal and national impact of this major event in Canadian history.
