Visions of War Above and BelowA long-running exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, on display from 2nd April 2015 until 25th September 2016, Visions of War Above and Below examines the history of war in the air, and how it was viewed by artists from above and below. Highlights from the museum's art collection including Paul Nash's Battle of Germany and Alison Wilding's contemporary Drones drawings show varied and imaginative responses to conflict, from surreal depictions of aircraft as creatures, to abstract views of bombing raids and detailed drawings of life in submarines.
