"Once More unto the Breach: The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight" - Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - War and the Creative Impulse: Searching for Sense in the Senseless

"When war is declared, it will be impossible to restrain the poets. Rhyme remains the most effective drum" (Jean Giraudoux, La Guerre de Troie n'aura pas lieu, 1935). This lecture posits danger and destruction as muses inspiring the eye, hand, and voice of the artist at war, whether at work on the frontline or homefront, in the ghetto or death camp. Joe Rosenthal's Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima and Ugo Giannini's drawings of the Normandy D-Day Landing are among the works at issue in this lecture. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10 a.m. for refreshments.
