Panthéon De La Guerre: Reconfiguring a Panorama of the Great War
The Panthéon de la Guerre was a cyclorama the size of a football field, featuring 5,000 full-length portraits of prominent figures from World War I—a painting that blatantly sought to arouse patriotic fervor in its viewers. This book traces that work’s shifting fortunes during its unlikely journey from Great War Paris to cold war Kansas City and examines the continuing journeys of its fragments in the world’s art markets.
An expansive mural inspired by the Pantheon de la Guerre will be created in front of visitors to the WW1 America exhibit.
