  The use of art as a method to record Canada's wartime service and accomplishmennts was given its start by Canadian-born Lord Beaverbrook in the First World War. Beaverbrook established war artists and ensured that the collection was enshrined in Canada. This collection, once the property of the Department of National Defence, is now housed in the new Canadian War Museum, with some of the most strikingly visual panels housed in the Senate of Canada. These have recently been fully cleaned and restored.

  In the Second World War the tradition of accredited war artists was resurected. A number of the artists were allotted to the Army and documented all aspects of military life in the early days of the war. Shown here are those works which include Ram tanks. Some pieces are finished paintings, others are simple drawings. All chronicle the use of Canada's tank.
