The Wartime Etchings of J. Alphege Brewer

From Friday, November 9, through Sunday, November 11, there will be an exhibition in the Memorial Room of Harvard's Memorial Church of color etchings by British artist James Alphege Brewer showing scenes from Belgium and Northern France—cathedrals, churches, and town buildings damaged or destroyed during World War I. In both the United States and Great Britain, these etchings were proudly hung on parlor walls in solidarity with the Allied cause and as a remembrance of the devastating cultural losses inflicted by the onslaught of war.

The exhibit can be viewed during the following times, coinciding with the events of the memorial weekend.

Friday, November 9: 9am-noon
Saturday, November 10: 8am-7:30pm
Sunday, November 11: 1-4pm
