Art 1919 - Joan Lennon

Two thousand years ago, Horace wrote "A picture is a poem without words."  Here are a few of those poems from one hundred years ago, as various and as vivid as if they had been painted yesterday, by artists who had just lived through WWI.

Those are beautiful. I love 'Leaves in the Brook'; and 'Dazzle Ships' is alive with movement!

Thanks Michelle, Abigail and Ann! I've had Leaves in the Brook on my wall for years and still get pleasure from it!
