From the ruins, death and devastation of war the figure of Arts, in the form of a woman, rises up, holding a sprig of bay leaves, a symbol of glory. A rainbow, perhaps representing hope, appears over the desolation.

This work forms part of the portfolio ‘The Great War: Britain’s Efforts and Ideals’, a series of 66 lithographic prints commissioned by the Ministry of Information in 1917. The series provides a broad and fascinating representation of Britain’s war objectives, military activities and effort on the Home Front.
