In her introduction, Amanda Hopkinson discusses the historical roots of Kennard's work, examining Constructivism, the development of photography and photomontage, and the close relationship between art, politics and propaganda. Kennard himself writes about the possibilities of undertaking an aesthetic practice in relation to social change, and considers how his art has interacted with the politics of actual events. The narrative is thematic rather than chronological, showing how a visual motif can be re-used in different contexts. Kennard's original artwork is often reproduced alongside the newspaper or poster in which it appeared.

This book is part of the centenary celebration of James Boswell's (1906-1971) birth. His work is being honoured by displays at Tate Britain, the Prints and Drawings Gallery at the British Museum and a one man retrospective at Square One Gallery, London. One of its most salient features is a remarkably prophetic set of anti-war satirical drawings done during Boswell's 1943 posting to Iraq. Richard Cork has said of these, 'I know of no parallel in English art for Boswell's ability to expose and denigrate the senseless waste of a conflict which official war artists approached with such muted emotions. Their relevance to today's conflict is poignant'. Boswell, a New Zealander who came to England in 1925 to study painting, was soon involved in the radical movement of the Left and became, throughout the thirties, its most vibrant artist with fierce satirical drawings that appeared in Left Review, of which he was Art Editor, Our Time, The Daily Worker and other left wing publications. He was also a

This book examines the phenomenon of modern memory as a reaction to total war, an aspiration to truth-seeking provoked by the independent forces of modern war and collective violence which is transnational, or postnational, in character. Using examples from prose and poetry, film and theatre, painting and photography, and music and the popular arts, the author traces a narrative path through the events of the twentieth century, defining the tradition of modern memory in terms of its essentially anti-militaristic, anti-war character, as expressed in the manner in which it represents recalled violence and atrocity. Through a series of thematic discussions of two world wars, the Shoah, urbicide and nuclear weapons, Postnational Memory explores the formation of transnational memory, drawing on examples from industrialized societies, with a focus on memory of real events and their reproduction in literature and the arts, often including personal recollections that link the self to the represented past. As such, by asking how the concept of modern memory is constructed through the victims of war and genocide, the book constitutes an alternative to national memories and hegemonic, militarist or ethnocentric histories. Surveying the emergence of new, transnational forms of remembering the past, it will appeal to students and scholars of sociology, memory studies and peace studies, as well as those working in disciplines such as modern and international history, cultural studies and military studies.

In this groundbreaking examination of British war art during the Second World War, Brian Foss delves deeply into what art meant to Britain and its people at a time when the nation's very survival was under threat. Foss probes the impact of war art on the relations between art, state patronage, and public interest in art, and he considers how this period of duress affected the trajectory of British Modernism. Supported by some two hundred illustrations and extensive archival research, the book offers the richest, most nuanced view of mid-century art and artists in Britain yet written. The author focuses closely on Sir Kenneth Clark's influential War Artists' Advisory Committee and explores topics ranging from censorship to artists' finances, from the depiction of women as war workers to the contributions of war art to evolving notions of national identity and Britishness. Lively and insightful, the book adds new dimensions to the study of British art and cultural history.

How is it that some established artists but not others come to be considered worth remembering? For answers, Etched in Memory looks at how history interacts with personal biography. The authors dig deeply into the archives for material on the careers and posthumous fates of nearly 300 British and American printmakers, half of them women, active during the Etching Revival of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The authors examine the effects of changing taste on artistic productivity, on building a reputation, and on the selective survival of artists within the collective memory. They document the influence on careers of family milieu, of acces to art education, of sponsorship and networks, of having (or lacking) money, and of being in the right place at the right time. Being remembered requires, at minimum, that the artist's work be preserved and deposited in the cultural archives. It is here that demographics and other circumstances put women at a cumulative disadvantage.

"British artist Eric Kennington (1888-1960) was a highly regarded stone carver, whose achievements were ranked in the 1920s and 1930s alongside those of his contemporaries Jacob Epstein, Eric Gill and Frank Dobson. His work has since fallen into neglect: Jonathan Black attributes this unjust neglect to Kennington's position between sculptural traditionalists and avant-garde artists in England." "Kennington was an Official War Artist in the First World War, and carved a number of war memorials in the 1920s. His later work is characterised by public architectural sculpture carved directly into the exterior surface of a building, and his public commissions include five relief panels for the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, Stratford upon Avon (1930-2); models/plans for the Pan American Columbus Memorial Lighthouse, Santo Domingo (1930-4); and the stone relief for the Harold Cohen Memorial Library, University of Liverpool (1937-8). During the last fifteen years of his life, Kennington concentrated on producing works for the interiors of churches." "The Sculpture of Eric Kennington includes the first complete catalogue of the artist's sculpture, and an essay which sets the work in the wider context of twentieth-century British art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
