Volume 5 of the series Dailės istorijos studijos (Art History Studies) presents papers that were read at the international conference Art During Two World Wars in Vilnius on 12 and 13 May 2011. The conference was organised by the Lithuanian Culture Research Institute. At the conference, art historians from Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia analysed issues on art and artistic life in England and Central-East Europe during the two great cataclysms of the 20th century. The initiators of the conference aimed to gather specialists in the specifics of war art, issues of artistic life, and the functioning of art in wartime situations. They tried to determine the scale and the range of the research, recent tendencies, and the application of new methods in their investigations. Historians specialising in the art of the First World War and the Second World War are not numerous, and this fact conditioned the invitation to Vilnius of specialists in both wars.
