Abstract:
This study of the Canadian War Memorials Fund, established during the Great War, focuses initially on the origin and organization of the Fund, looking particularly at the roles of Max Aitken (Lord Beaverbrook), Harold Harmsworth (Lord Rothermere) and Paul Konody, and how it grew out of Aitken's enthusiasm as Canadian War ,Records Officer. After discussing the artists' recruitment and their participation in the scheme, it examines the symbolism and iconography of the works produced, then concludes with a look at the post-war neglect of the Fund's collection and its place as a precedent in Canada's war art programme during World War II.
