'Watercolours and War' by Jo Walton
Talk | The Society of Antiquaries of London
Monday 20 May 2013 - 14:30
From the battlefields of the Crimea to the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, artists have used watercolours to capture the essence of a place of a moment in dangerous or hostile territory. In this talk with Jo Walton, an art historian who lectures widely for NADFAS and other institutions, explores some of the vivid images created by artists who were also participants in war either as soldiers or as official war artists, including Eric Ravilious, Thomas Hennell and Henry Moore.
