World War II in American Art presents a portrayal of World War II and its aftermath as expressed by artists such as Benton Spruance, Raphael Soyer, William Sharp, and Charles Quest. The artists often based their paintings on personal experiences in battle or on the homefront, striving to capture the intensity and emotion of the war and its aftereffects. Arranged by subject matter, the book includes paintings of acts of war, the wounded, the survivors, the prisoners, the ruins, the dead, the workers, the homefront, religion, recreation, and victory. Included with the narrative are 104 photographs, a 16 page color insert, and a foreword by Edward Reep, a war artist-correspondent who was the winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship for his work.
