World War 1 (WW1) Art
My grandfather, Gyrth Russell, was a Canadian War Artist. With this year marking the start of that war, this board of official war art is a tribute to those who died. The art has more sense than their deaths. Gyrth Russell was a Canadian, born in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1892. He was commissioned in London by Lord Beaverbrook, and spent much of 1918 recording the nightmarish landscape of battlefield France, working alongside artists such as Frank Brangwyn and Augustus John.
