Any enduring romanticism for war was obliterated by the industrialized brutality of World War I, from which legions of soldiers returned disfigured by facial injuries.
One artist, Anna Coleman Ladd, turned her neoclassical training into a tool for sculpting new faces for the defaced. (Allison Meier, in Hyperallergic )
