"Why may not the real horrors of battle be illustrated?" Every time I have painted the reality I have been requested to alter it." So wrote Captain Pearce, official First World War artist in January 1919. How is the reality of the whole army of soldiers churned into mud a Passchendaele reconciled with an austere image of a field of crosses strewn over a blasted landscape? How does an artist render in paint the experience of terror when his own nation's military forces recklessly confront a peace flotilla? What do the rapidly moving images of electronic death mean to a young video player. The author explores issues such as the heroic code in art, propaganda, censorship and peace art, questioning the function of visual imagery of war in contemporary society
