    But the first painting to truly depict it was immediately censored

    Hello everybody!

    Does "But the first painting to truly depict it was immediately censored" mean "But the first painting which/that portrays it was immediately censored".

    In my opinion, the painting portrays it and was censored right away.

    Thank you.

    Yes. That is correct. The painting was censored because it was judged to be bad for morale.

    Re: But the first painting to truly depict it was immediately censored

    Later on in the text, there are some more details about what happened:

    Government censors did not like Paths of Glory. They judged it bad for morale and refused to pay Nevinson for it. But he included it anyway in the first exhibition of his war paintings in London early in 1918, with a brown paper strip across the canvas carrying the word "censored". He was reprimanded both for exhibiting a censored painting and, bizarrely, for unauthorised use of the word "censored" in a public place.
