The Great War in PortraitsRather than presenting a military history of the war, the National Portrait Gallery aims to focus on the way the Great War was represented through portraits of those involved. The Great War in Portraits takes an international perspective. As well as iconic portraits of Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen and Winston Churchill, the exhibition reflects the war experience of those from all social classes who served from throughout the Commonwealth and contrasts these portraits with rare important loans of major art works by Lovis Corinth and Max Beckmann and Kirchner's painting 'Selbstbildnis als Soldat' (Self-portrait as a Soldier). These German expressionist masterpieces are strikingly exhibited together, for the first time, with Harold Gillies? rarely shown photographs of facially injured soldiers from the Royal College of Surgeons.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
