Two Australian artists recently continued the tradition of official Australian war art that began in World War I by traveling for six weeks throughout the Middle East to record the lives of Australian troops in wartime. The paintings, composed using photographs, create a vivid picture of the experience of war. On the homepage visitors will find a slideshow of 19 of the paintings and photographs by the artists. Additional paintings, photographs, plus some of the equipment used by the artists, can be found by clicking on the appropriate links below the second paragraph on the homepage. Under the "Further Information" heading is a "Video Interview With Lyndell Brown and Charles Green (YouTube)".
