Moving The Truck Another Yard is another work by Alfred Munnings, depicting the work of the soldier-lumberjacks of the Canadian Forestry Corps in the First World War.
Building A Mill At Labergement depicts the work of building the means to process that timber for the war effort.
Mill And Part Of A Camp gives us the final result of such an endeavour.
Watering Horses (Study) is the title of this painting.
Here we have Log Hauling And Loading.
Following the war, Munnings would have much of his work exhibited among other war art. This period would establish his reputation.
Art can be an active witness of war suffering.ReplyDelete
Duro trabajo, cuando no había tantos medios mecánicos, como los que hay ahora.ReplyDelete
...these painting are a snapshot back in history.ReplyDelete
Great exhibit, the painting of the Watering Horses is my favorite. Take care, have a happy new week!ReplyDelete
Now the preparations for war, and the war itself, are on nightly television.ReplyDelete
These beautiful paintings are good reminder of the war.ReplyDelete
We’re there two Munnings? I had thought that he was a British artist.ReplyDelete
He was, but he was stationed with the Canadians, and got on well with them.Delete
He was such a talent.ReplyDelete
He was. I'm still astonished that I hadn't heard of him before.Delete
Another great series of classical paintings ~ReplyDelete

Awesome new header. we can look forward to spring beauty.ReplyDelete
I very much enjoyed this part of the Munnings exhibit -- logging is familiar to me (because we lived in the Pacific Northwest US and still do at least part-time) and I enjoyed this look at the history and learning how necessary it was to the war effort.ReplyDelete
Logging is part of life in Canada too.Delete
Men from our last home town were in the forestry corps during war. Thanks for sharing these images.ReplyDelete
I love all the bright tulips in your header! A foreshadowing of spring in all its glory. Interesting how paintings tell the storyReplyDelete
Yes it is.Delete
The paintings are beautiful and offer a glimpse of the past.ReplyDelete
