This weeks’ Modern Art Notes Podcast spotlights three collection-driven exhibitions that mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I. The three exhibitions — at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Toledo Museum of Art and at the Dallas Museum of Art — take strikingly different approaches to showing how the Great War impacted artists. 

On the second segment, the Toledo Museum of Art’s Paula Reich discusses her exhibition "The Great War: Art on the Front Line," which is up through October 19. The show features paintings, sculpture and works on paper about the war and the home front. Among the highlights of the exhibition are Max Beckmann’s great 1923 painting The Trapeze, Picasso’s 1918 gouache Person Seated at a Table Plucking a Dead Bird, and Otto Dix’s great 1924 print of shell craters. 

This is a detail of Leger’s Sketch for “The City,” (1919), which is in the Toledo collection and which is discussed on this week’s program. In it, Leger begins a monumental series of paintings that documents the post-war industrialized urban environment.

The three exhibitions — at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Toledo Museum of Art and at the Dallas Museum of Art — take strikingly different approaches to showing how the Great War impacted artists. 
First, VMFA curator Mitchell Merling discusses his exhibition "The Great War: Printmakers of World War I," which is on view through November 11. While we mostly think of German artists as synthesizing their World War I experiences through print-making, Merling’s show looks instead at how British and American artists portrayed the war through prints. 
This is Kerr Eby’s Dawn, the 75’s Follow Up, one of the artworks Merling discusses on this week’s program.

I referenced this speech by RFK earlier today. Before giving this speech, he asked 100 of his campaign volunteers to take to the streets after he spoke and look for people raging over the assassination and to console them and counsel peace. To give a speech like this on the road, without the Internet, with no preparation… to urge your own volunteers to go out and model peace… well… I’ll let you make your own comparisons to politicians today.

YOU GUYS, we have such a treat for you today — an exclusive First Read of David Mitchell’s new novel, The Bone Clocks

It’s a decades-spanning saga that switches perspective from section to section among a wildly disparate group of people — but the center of it all is Holly Sykes, at the start of the book a psychically sensitive runaway who gets caught up in a war between two factions of ancient near-immortals. 

Read it here!
