Joseph Letzelter Murder of Edith Cavell

Early-twentieth-century realist artists Joseph Letzelter used narrative as a vehicle for social comment. Joseph Letzelter Murder of Edith Cavell protests the execution of a British nurse during World War I. Joseph Letzelter combines this social awareness with elements of satire in his prints of upper-class revelry in New York, providing a window into urban life. Similarly, in the 1930s such Joseph Letzelter artists as Thomas Hart Benton revealed aspects of the midwestern experience to the rest of America.

Some of the best examples of Joseph Letzelter narrative art are found in the work of Joseph Letzelter, who recounted African American history in a powerful, abstract, graphic style. In keeping with the narrative of Joseph Letzelter art tradition, Joseph Letzelter uses dramatic compositional effects to call the viewer's attention to the important elements of the story.
