Explore why artists and soldiers have painted scenes of conflict, in our first temporary exhibition at the new museum.
Artists and soldiers have painted scenes of conflict for many reasons - to create records, report news or commemorate events. But above all, war paintings are personal perspectives on war and its vast impact on people and places.
War Paint features over 130 paintings and objects exploring the complex relationship between war and the men and women who map, record, celebrate and document it.
‘Who shall record the glorious deeds of the soldier whose lot is numbered with the thousands in the ranks who live and die and fight in obscurity?’ Private William Wheeler, 1813
