Goodbye, Old Man: Matania's Vision of the First World War

Goodbye, Old Man: Matania's Vision of the First World War by Fortunino Matania Art Books at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: GOM (click for larger picture)

For the first half of the twentieth century, the hugely talented artist Fortunino Matania captured some of the world's most memorable and iconic moments.

From the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 to the coronations of three British monarchs, this Italian-born illustrator recorded almost every major event as 'special artist' for popular illustrated magazine The Sphere.

The apogee of his prolific output was during the First World War when he produced paintings on a weekly basis, recording in breathtakingly realistic detail the multi-faceted nature of the conflict and often visiting the front in order to gather material for his pictures. Contains over 100 images brought together for the first time.
