9780750955973: Goodbye, Old Man: Matania's Vision of the First World War

The first book to focus on the war paintings of one of the greatest global artists of World War I

From the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 through to capturing the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, Fortunino Matania recorded almost every major event of the century. Yet, for many, it is his World War I paintings that remain the most haunting. As a war artist, he recorded some of the most emotive scenes of trench warfare to emerge from the war. His work brought the reality of life on the frontline home through his drawings and paintings and he became world renowned as he created patriotic works for Britain and America. This compilation brings the power of his work to a new generation to mark the centenary of World War I.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For the first half of the twentieth century, the artist Fortunino Matania captured some of the world s most memorable and iconic moments. From the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 to the coronations of three British monarchs, this Italian-born illustrator recorded almost every major event as `special artist for popular illustrated magazine The Sphere. The apogee of his prolific output was during the First World War when he produced paintings on a weekly basis, recording in breathtakingly realistic detail the multifaceted nature of the conflict and often visiting the front in order to gather material for his pictures. The breadth and quality of Matania s work takes in scenes of trench life, the war at sea, the heat of battle and the war effort at home. Meanwhile, his most famous picture, `Goodbye, Old Man , quickly became one of the most emotive images of the war. Admired by some of the finest artists of the period, and familiar to millions around the world, over 100 of Matania s pictures are brought together for the first time in this compilation, introducing the power of his work to a new generation to mark the centenary of the First World War.
