Art Under Fire focuses on the wars that have been such an unrelenting feature of the past hundred years; showing how war changed art in the twetieth century and how art has changed attitudes to war. Betty Churcher, one of Australia's leading art historians, explores the work of official war artists in World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam and the war against terror in Afganistan and the Persian Gulf. She looks, too, at lesser-known artists, ordinary soldiers, who were drawing and painting in the trenches during World War I, the concentration camps of Europe, the prisoner of war camps of South East Asia, and at artists who have been inspired by peace-keeping missions in Timor, Somalia and Eritrea. Produced to accompany the SBS television series of the same name and beautifully illustrated throughout.
