Would this type of art be banned in today's schools?

Dix, Otto. "Flanders" (1934-36)
In 1934-36 Dix, a participant in the First World War, will paint the picture "Flanders" based on the novel "Fire" by Henri Barbusse. Barbusse is a French writer who fought in the First World War on the other side (also a volunteer, and also wounded, award crosses, etc.). After coming from the front, he wrote an anti-war novel "Fire". There is an episode there, how in Flanders heavy rain caused a flood that flooded the trenches of both the French and the Germans.
"All night they floundered in the water in their trenches, which turned into rivers and lakes. Many drowned, clinging to the creeping earth. And at some point they were not up to the war. At dawn, the survivors of the flood looked the same from both sides - up to their ears in mud, soaked, barely alive, among the corpses floating in the trenches."
