The New York Historical Society is launching its newest exhibition: World War I Beyond the Trenches, which will be on display from May 26th to September 3rd. In honor of the centennial of America’s involvement in World War I, the exhibition will examine the war through the eyes of American artist across generations, including works from George Bellows, Georgia O’Keeffe, Horace Pippin and a masterpiece by John Singer Sargent, which has never traveled to New York before.

Moreover, historic artifacts — ranging from uniforms and military gear to a soldier’s illustrated letters to various propaganda posters — will be displayed throughout the museum to provide greater context.
