Throughout World War II, the British government employed a diverse group of artists to produce a rich visual record of wartime events. But the art from this important collection often far exceeds this objective, giving voice to both the artist and the soldiers who are depicted. Art from the Second World Warcontains more than fifty images chosen from among the Imperial War Museum’s impressive collection of works by war artists.

In Art from the Second World War, the collected works show lives in extremity. Alongside artworks by the brothers John and Paul Nash are works by Henry Moore and Laura Knight, among many others.
