A Crisis of BrillianceSome of the most well-known British artists of twentieth century feature in A Crisis of Brilliance, the Dulwich Picture Gallery's survey which includes works by contemporaries such as CRW Nevinson, Stanley Spencer, Mark Gertler and Dora Carrington. Students together at the Slade School of Art in London between 1908 and 1912, they formed part of what their esteemed drawing teacher Henry Tonks described as the school's last 'crisis of brilliance'. This exhibition which features over 70 original works by the group includes images which document their responses to the First World War.
