Trench Art

Poster by Henri Dangon produced for the exhibition War Art at the salon des Armées from December 22, 1915 to February 22, 1916.


Of all the artefacts produced by The Great War, trench art is probably the most curious and complex. These commemorative objects raise questions with regard to their technical creation, as well as to the attention they received and the intention with which they were made. An artistic expression of a personal experience during a major European event, the various forms taken by trench art make this practice a fascinating object of anthropological and archeological study.
