BRITISH ARTISTS & THE FIRST WORLD WAR: Stanley Spencer, Christopher Nevinson, Eric Kennington and Paul & John Nash Tricha Passes Thursday 20 September 2018

This lecture is chosen to commemorate the Centenary of the end of World War One on 11 November 1918. 

Tate Britain is holding an exhibition which relates to this lecture until 23 September:

AFTERMATH: Art in the Wake of World War One

Stanley Spencer, Paul and John Nash, Christopher Nevinson, Eric Kennington, Percy Wyndham Lewis all painted scenes that depicted the First World War and their reaction to the aftermath of what Paul Nash referred to as ' a bitter truth'. As we approach the centenary of the end of the war, this lecture will reflect on the different ways that artists came to terms with their experiences and how in subsequent decades the memory of the war was still very much present in their work
