The Flowers of the Great War / Christopher Latham.
Australian Artists Analysed in this Book
|Frederick Septimus Kelly|
"The Great War (1914-1918) took the lives of more artists than any other conflict, and changed forever the course of the arts in the early 20th century. Curiously many of those artists, during their war service, created works notable for their serenity and beauty, as they sought to transcend the horrors of the trenches.The Flowers of War project has recorded and documented many of these lost war-time works from the battlefields, exploring the catalogues of those composers who were killed, in order to bring their music to modern audiences, as an act of measuring and demonstrating the cultural cost of war."
