There has been no absence of commentary by historians on the repercussions of the Thirty Years War and the consequences of the peace treaty, but it was not until the 1990s that we began to study the artistic production of countries at war. To what extent can we currently assess the impact of war and peace on the arts? What mechanisms ensure the survival of art in a war economy? What are the relationships between art and propaganda? These are just a few of the questions this book attempts to answer.
