Paraguayan Warby Fernando Vieira
ABOUT THE ART
The Paraguayan War was an international military conflict in South America fought from 1864 to 1870 between Paraguay and the Triple Alliance of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. It caused approximately 400,000 deaths, one of the highest ratios of fatalities to combatants of any war in South America in modern history. It particularly devastated Paraguay, which suffered catastrophic losses in population and was forced to cede territory to Argentina and Brazil.
In Brazil, the war helped bring about the end of slavery. It has been argued the war played a key role in the consolidation of Argentina as a nation-state country, became South America's wealthiest nation, and one of the wealthiest in the world, by the early 20th century.
