See War Art in Greenwich

Up until February 2015, visitors to Queen’s House in Greenwich can see a new exhibition of 'War Artists at Sea'.

The display features the best of Royal Museums Greenwich’s collection of First and Second World War art, such as battle scenes and portraits of the soldiers.

Artists featured include Leslie Cole, Richard Eurich, Gladys E Reed, Stephen Bone, William Dring and Eric Ravilious, among others.

Official war art served purposes of documentation, commemoration, propaganda and raising morale among the troops and people back home.

Specific paintings include John Everett’s convoy of merchant ships in 1918 and Stephen Bone’s impressionistic eyewitness portrayal of the Allied landings in Normandy in 1944. Other images depict the day-to-day lives of those at war.

Enjoy a visit to Greenwich as part of a short break to the capital. While there, visit the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory and the Cutty Sark.
