The Artist and the Warrior: Military History through the Eyes of the Masters
Theodore K. Rabb, "The Artist and the Warrior: Military History through the Eyes of the Masters"
ISBN: 0300126379 | 2011 | PDF | 288 pages | 148 MB

How have artists across the millennia responded to warfare? In this uniquely wide-ranging book, Theodore Rabb blends military history and the history of art to search for the answers. He draws our attention to masterpieces from the ancient world to the twentieth century-paintings, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, engravings, architecture, and photographs-and documents the evolving nature of warfare as artists have perceived it.
The selected works represent landmarks in the history of art and are drawn mainly from the western tradition, though important examples from Japan, India, and the Middle East are also brought into the discussion. Together these works tell a story of long centuries during which warfare inspired admiration and celebration. Yet a shift toward criticism and condemnation emerged in the Renaissance, and by the end of the nineteenth century, glorification of the warrior by leading artists had ceased. Rabb traces this progression, from such works as the Column of Trajan and the Titian "Battle of Lepanto", whose makers celebrated glorious victories, to the antiwar depictions created by Brueghel, Goya, Picasso, and others. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, this book presents a study of unprecedented sweep and multidisciplinary interest.
