In conjunction with our Heritage Lottery Funded WW1 history project; Our War, Their Story, we have invited art history lecturer Richard Dean to present a talk inspired by the artists who lived and worked through this difficult time. 

World War One was the most documented event in human history. This talk will look at how the war was recorded by those who participated; with a special focus on artists for whom the war, as an event and as a memory, became their greatest subject: Francois Flameng, Henry Tonks, Harvey Dunn, Horace Pippin and Kathe Kollwitz.

This talk will incorporate informal discussion, PowerPoint presentations and is suitable for those with an interest in Art History and WW1 social history.

Warning: this talk includes images of violence and injury associated with war.
