Brushes with War

Brushes with War

Brushes with War is a powerful and emotive insight into the experience of soldiers from World War I through the drawings and paintings they created. This truly impactful exhibition marks the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.

Featuring original artworks by soldier-artists of multiple nationalities, the exhibition provides an authentic account of the experience of ordinary soldiers. It offers clear glimpses into World War I through the eyes of the men who actually fought. The artists' stories themselves varies, whether they fought in combat, were wounded in action or taken prisoner, but each of them presents a perspective free from censorship and propaganda. As a result, the art in this exhibition is quite distinct from the official and illustrative art of the time.
