Abstract

During the First World War, many belligerent nations commissioned official art to celebrate and preserve their experience of the conflict. This article explores the creation of the Australian, Canadian and New Zealand official war paintings; in particular, by tracing the emergence, development and fate of each collection, the article examines the process of memory-making and the politics at play in the commemoration of the war in art. It argues that while the collections were born from similar ideas circulating among dominion officials in London, these manifested themselves in markedly different ways under each war art program.
