The unique art that graced military aircraft in World War II and the Korean War. Applied by amateurs or professional artists like Vargas, the art typically featured alluring women whose charms belied the deadly cargo the crew hoped to deliver to its targets. Hundreds of examples are shown in a combination of archival photos from the wars and current photos of artwork in museum collections.

Since World War I, nose art has adorned military aircraft around the world. Intended for friendly rather than enemy eyes, these images—with a wide range of artistic expression—are part of the personal and unit histories of pilots and aircrews. As civilian and military attitudes and rationales for war change from one conflict to the next, changes can also be seen in the iconography of nose art. This analysis from a cultural perspective compares nose art in the United States, Great Britain and France from World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Although soldiers throughout history have created war souvenirs, the term trench art originated in France during the early years of World War I. The War to End All Wars produced trench art on a scale never seen before or since. Largely neglected beyond a circle of devoted collectors until recently, interest in trench art is experiencing a revival by museums and collectors on both sides of the Atlantic.
