War Artists At Sea
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 1ST FEBRUARY 2015
Showcasing the best of Royal Museums Greenwich's collection of First and Second World War art, this display at The Queen's House includes visually arresting and moving portraits, battle scenes, and depictions of everyday life during conflict. Charged with the task of revealing a truth that went beyond the simple recording of events, official war art served the purposes of commemoration, instruction, documentation and propaganda as well as raising morale at home and at the front. War Artists at Sea features paintings and works on paper and consists of a rolling programme of displays throughout 2014. Artists on display include: Leslie Cole, Eric Ravilious, Richard Eurich, Norman Wilkinson, Stephen Bone, William Dring, John Worsley, and Charles Wheeler.
