Description:
Hohenzollern-Schlaberg-Hughes Collection, Gift of Thomas Lowe Hughes, J.D. 1952.
A photomechanical print of a painting.
Abstract:
In the picture, the British lion gobbles up various national currencies in the background while in the foreground a battle takes place between a few generals of the Central Powers and a large army of the Allies, led by generals from Russia, Italy, France, etc., and followed by a horde of soldiers (all dark-complected and mostly dressed in white) as well as dangerous animals such as a gorilla, a leopard, and several serpents. In back of the generals of the Central Powers are such cultural objects as a book and a palette with paints and brushes and such useful objects as a plow and a wheel; the Allies in contrast are stepping on a book labeled "Kultur" as well as on emblems of various nations such as Finland and Poland.
