In this study, Art, Poetry, and WW1 by Edward Lucie-Smith of writing, poetry, and painting in the centenary year of the outbreak of the First World War, the author considers the historical impact on the general psyche of the calamitous events, reflected in the expression of poets and visual artists.

The volume includes Eric Kennington, C. R. W. Nevinson, John Singer Sargent, William Orpen, Stanley Spencer, and Paul Nash; and writers Siegfried Sassoon, Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas, and T. S. Eliot. In Europe, the painters Otto Dix, Max Beckman, Franz Marc, Gino Severini, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Ludwig Meidner.

He establishes a continuity to the theme with reference to works by Velázquez, Watteau, Goya, and others, in their treatment of the spectacle of battle and the horrors of war and human conflict.
