Chicago Art Deco Society in collaboration with the Caxton Club present a special viewing of:

EN GUERRE: French Illustrators and World War I

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the commencement of World War I.

The exhibit En Guerre: French Illustrators and World War I offers a fresh exploration of the Great War as viewed through French graphic illustration of the period. 

Join exhibit curators Teri Edelstein and Neil Harris to see how illustrated books, magazines, and prints present a range of perspectives essential to a deeper understanding of the war in France. 

Patriotism, nationalism, propaganda, and the soldier’s experience are all portrayed while the mobilization of the French national home front is seen through fashion, music, humor and children’s literature.

Reservations are required.
