Explore the impact of the First World War on British, German and French art and discover how artists responded to the horror of conflict.
Marking one hundred years since the end of the First World War, this exhibition brings together over 150 works from 1916 to 1932.
War artists reflected on the long-term impact of the conflict before it had even ended and, afterwards, art played a dual role as memorial and social comment. Both public and private memorial pieces are on display, exploring the debate over appropriate style and form, and artists’ responses to the physical injuries war left behind.
The same period also saw the birth of dada and surrealism, and artists turned their attention to the future as post-war societies began to rebuild.
