WW2 art can generally be divided into several categories:
  1. traditional art created during the war
  2. traditional art created after the war
  3. decorative art that adorned military aircraft and vehicles
  4. informational (often propaganda) art used in posters
  5. art stolen (or otherwise disappered) during WW2
