Paintings made by Italian prisoners of war in the 1940s included religious scenes and Disney characters; German PoW art, by contrast, often depicted landscapes, recalling an idealized homeland, and artwork by British soldiers was frequently humorous in intent. This investigation into popular war art of the 20th century assesses the style and purpose of this little-considered genre from the pin-up girls of the US Air Force to the sectarian murals of Northern Ireland.
