Presented here is the first comprehensive account of the U.S. Army art program in World War I. The AEF artists saw their role as one of preserving images of the entire aspect of American involvement in a way that photography could not. Unsure of what to do with these official artists, AEF leadership in France issued passes that allowed them relative freedom to move about, sketching as they went and finding supplies and lodgings where they could. Here are some of the amazing results of their work. 028288
