The Trivial Eye: Pictures of War

by Jason Toon

For as long as people have been making pictures, they've been making pictures of war. And no wonder. The grime, the glory, the heroism, the horror: war is human drama at its most intense and primal. The heat of battle makes for powerful images, whether they're in a museum or a newspaper. Can you name these paintings, sculptures, and photos; the people who created them; and the conflicts they depict?

Answers are here. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.

You want more Trivial Eye, don't you? Yeah, you do.
