Grand Illusions

American Art and the First World War

David M. Lubin

  • Upends traditional understandings of the Great War's effects on the visual arts in America
  • Written in a vivid, engaging style, rich with cultural-historical details
  • Profiles famous and forgotten artists, ranging from world-renowned figures like D. W. Griffith and John Singer Sargent to the neglected soldier-painter Claggett Wilson and the African American outsider artist Horace Pippin
  • Features illustrations from epoch-defining films, sculptures, photographs, and paintings
  • Interdisciplinary appeal: Lubin's narrative covers literature, paintings, architecture, and film
