During the war, Life magazine sent artists worldwide to record in paint all aspects of war, from preparations on the home front to battles abroad. This talk explores Peter Hurd's work for Life as an artist-correspondent during World War II, from his coverage of the Eighth U.S. Army Air Force in 1942 to his reporting on the activities of the Air Transport Command in 1944. As an artist correspondent, Hurd traveled around the world, from England to Ascension Island, depicting a range of subjects, from modern aircraft flying over medieval ruins and equatorial island airstrips to U.S. Airmen in England and civilians shopping in markets in Khartoum.
Art historian and curator Dr. Melissa Renn is the collections manager of Harvard Business School’s Art and Artifacts Collection. Dr. Renn has written on American art from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries and published widely on Life Magazine.
