Eugène Burnand Exhibition

Alliance Française, 179 Thanon Witthayu
Lumphini, Pathum Wan - 10330 Bangkok
9-23 novembre 2018

Thanks to François Doré from the Librairie du Siam, the Irasec and the Alliance Française are pleased to present 10 original portraits of Asian soldiers painted by Eugène Burnand (1850-1921). They are part of his collection of soldiers of the Great War drawn between 1917 and 1921 by the Swiss painter. After studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Geneva and in Paris, the landscape painter became interested in other genres such as religious painting. He was also passionate about engraving and illustration, collaborating with periodicals like L'Illustration. He is most well-known, however, for his series of pastel and pencil portraits representing soldiers of the Great War. During his military mission in Paris in 1917, he stayed at rue d'Assas, near the seminary of Saint-Sulpice, where passing troops were housed. He drew his first models there and then traveled through France, including Marseille and Montpellier, where the French and British colonial troops were stationed. His models were paid but some refused payment as they considered it an honour. Most are identified by name, some only by rank, unit, or country of origin.

Masters of Their Own Destiny

Asians in the First World War and its Aftermath

Chamchuri 10 Bldg., 7th Floor - Chulalongkorn University
November 9th - 10th 2018

The idea of such a conference emerged in Paris at the beginning of the commemoration process of the First World War centenary. While the Asian soldiers and workers were mentioned as a mass of colonized people engaged to serve their masters, the voices of around 1 723 000 Asians (more than 70% of the non-Western people participating in the war), who came from 1914 to 1920 to Europe to fight and work on the front or on the home front, still remain a large unexplored field of research. The cultural history—which take into account the global community of culture between the home front and the front, and the history from below which attempts to account the perspective of common people, have still to question the daily life, the exceptional encounter with the European societies, and the cohabitation with Western common people, that these individuals experienced. Not to mention the discovering of other battlefields in the colonized regions in the Middle East.

Asians in World War One

A Visual History of the Indians,
Siamese and Vietnamese at War

Chamchuri 10 Bldg., 7th Floor - Chulalongkorn University
November 9th - 23rd 2018

The First World War was the first conflict to be photographed and the first in which pictures were actively exploited and controlled in support of the war effort. From WW1, photography became a powerful and established medium of mass communication. Most of these pictures are coming from the French archives and the private archives of the Prince Chakrabongse. The pictures come from three majors archival holdings in France : The Établissement de Communication et de Production Audiovisuelle de la Défense (ECPAD), The Service Historique de la Défense and La Contemporaine. An important part of these visual sources were mainly produced by the Section photographique des Armées, created in 1915 by the French Ministry of War to counter the strong German propaganda. Beside the official visual archives, these institutions have also collected private albums of amateur military photographers.
