Abstract

Beginning with the Romantic era, 19th-century painters and sculptors increased their dramatic sense of life and history along with a process of self-consciousness that intensified their sensibility. The article studies this phenomenon through the example of Chilean sculptor Rebeca Matte Bello (1875-1929) and her 'Monumento a la Guerra' at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, placed there in 1914, immediately before World War I. The genesis of this monument as revealed in personal and Chilean diplomatic correspondence shows that, despite the proliferation of pacifist movements led by the international court, Matte Bello anticipated not peace but suffering, destruction, and death.
