Transport By Sea: Maintaining Forces Overseas

1917. Lithograph, signed in image lower centre, 35.5 x 46cm.

This is no. 65 from the series of 66 lithographs entitled The Great War: Britain’s efforts and ideals, published by the British Ministry of Information, London, 1917. This series was most likely created for propaganda purposes; it was reproduced in the press and was included in exhibitions in Britain, France, and the USA. Charles Pears was one of twenty-one artists, commissioned to create images relating to the “efforts” and “ideals” associated with the war. Pears contributed to the “efforts” with black-and-white lithographs which included Naval activities, women at work and aircraft production. The prints that formed the “ideals,” were in colour and focussed on ambitions and aims. Ref: Aust. War Memorial, Royal Museums Greenwich.
