Rearranging History: Daniel MacMorris and the Panthéon de la Guerre

What happened to the world's largest painting? Kansas City artist Daniel MacMorris helped the Museum acquire the Panthéon de la Guerre in 1956. He then cut and pasted sections from the huge canvas, rearranged them, painted in new individuals and fit the newly configured composition to the north wall of Memory Hall, where it remains today. The exhibition explores the vast fragments left behind by MacMorris – the majority having never been seen in public since the Panthéon's last showing in its entirety in 1940.
