I found discovered this piece of art from http://cstlcla.semo.edu/ebooth/videos/ArtCommentaryCC/PerspectivesArtCommentaryCC.html website. I was fascinated by the colorful and demonstrative pictures that were used propagate Second World War. The scene of the pictures applied in the art clearly explains all the elements used to fuel the war. Posters and propagandas were the two major tools used to request support from the people (Bailey, 2013).
This artwork comments on the social propaganda instruments used by the society that contributed to the occurrence of the Second World War. Yes. I agree with the artist’s stance because several nations such as Nazi, Germany, America and Japan used various social propagandas before and during the war to hoodwink their fellow countrymen to support their war decisions (Bird & Rubenstein, 2014). These aspects are well represented in the chosen artwork.
This artwork has been created using a YouTube, one of the digital applications. The artist has represented the artwork in the best manner because the viewers can combine the sound with the pictures to have a full understanding of the artist's message.
There is no specific place where this piece of work is located. It can be found on the organization's websites, learning institutions libraries among other places. The analysis of this artwork indicates that it may not have a deep influence on the audience but can provide them with useful information about Second World War. The little impact it can have on the society is helping the individuals in making political decisions. It teaches the society that they should not only base their decisions according to what they hear from the political class, but they should investigate further before arriving at the final decision.
Some of the quotes used by artist include;
"He is watching you."
“When you ride alone you ride with Hitler."
“Are you doing all you can?”
“You are either with us or against us."
War is about sacrifice, boys…..like when I quit planning golf.
, “Join or die."
Apart from the social commentary, I found this artwork educative. The social aspects and historical information contained in work are very useful for historians. It helps them in understanding what transpired the beginning of the second war, what tools were used to influence people and neutral nations to participate in the war. Therefore, apart from social commentary, it has been used to store very important information concerning the Second World War.
