Beschreibung"The Pantheon de la Guerre" was a cyclorama the size of a football field, featuring 5,000 full-length portraits of prominent figures from World War I - a painting that blatantly sought to arouse patriotic fervor in its viewers. This book traces this work's shifting fortunes during its unlikely journey from Great War Paris to cold war Kansas City.
PortraitMARK LEVITCH, a Ph.D. candidate in art history at the University of Pennsylvania, was previously an intelligence analyst at the State Department and a graduate curatorial fellow at the National Gallery of Art. He lives in Washington, D.C.
