1
Great Britain, 1879 by Septimus Edwin b. Scott.
This poster is very aggressive in its attempts to
coax men into joining the army. It places the
blame directly on Germany and uses bright colors
and violence to attract attention to the poster.

RECRUITMENT
2
This poster is from Germany and during the time
of 1914-1918.
Without translation, it is clear that this German
poster claims to have Jesus on their side. It is
as though Jesus himself is blessing the German
soldiers on their way to battle. This exhibition
of pious behavior surely was provocative enough
to cause young men to enlist.

Impact on Art
This watercolor is by Otto Dix. It is called
Sturmtruppe geht unter Gas vor (Assault under
Gas), and it was done in 1924. Otto Dix was from
Uternhouse, Germany and served as a
non-commissioned officer on the Western Front.
His art became much more political after the war.
This painting is significant because he is not
showing the enemy in such a frightful manner, but
his own side. He gave a more horrifying look at
his own side, and not the enemys.

This oil on canvas was done by Félix Vallotton
and is entitled Le cimetière de Châlons-sur-Marne
(The Cemetery of Châlons sur Marne), it was done
in 1917. Vallotton was born in Lausanne,
Switzerland. This painting was very straight
forward and represents the massive deaths that
occurred in the war. Upon closer inspection,
youll notice that all the crosses represent
soldiers from all sides. This painting was the
first to introduce the symbol for the unknown
soldier.
