Exclusive North American engagement

1914–2014

 

It has been 100 years since the First World War broke out in Europe.

To mark the centennial of the start of the war, the Musée de l'Armée at Les Invalides in Paris consented to a special loan to the Royal 22e Régiment Museum consisting of 20 works, some of which had never before been on public view.

The works were painted according to scenes seen on the battlefields or from photographs, telling the story of the Great War through the events in France. The war is revealed in paint, gouache, and watercolour in scenes depicting soldiers' lives, landscapes, departures, and meetings.

 Access to the temporary exhibition is included to the fees of the general admission of the Citadelle and the museum
