This exhibition explores the way artists and photographers responded to the bombing of London during the Second World War.
The London Blitz beginning in 1940 has been described as the second Great Fire of London and large swathes of the city were destroyed.
The British government recognized that 'a war so epic in its scope by land, sea and air' should be recorded and interpreted by artists.
These official War Artists were tasked with depicting events and experiences both on the field of battle and on the home front.
Focusing around a group of nine recently acquired drawings by painter Graham Sutherland, the exhibition also includes work by Bill Brandt, John Piper and David Bomberg, amongst others.
The exhibition is in the lower floor of the museum.
