Art of the Great War 1914-1918: Exhibition curated by John Noott
June 8 @ 10:00 am - June 16 @ 5:00 pm
The main exhibition during the festival at The Broadway Museum & Art Gallery curated from the collection of John Noott.
Born in 1932, John Noott well remembers talk of the Great War as the country was busy preparing itself for the Second World War. These were formative events in a young life and proved to be foundational for a later passion that has seen John gather together an important collection of war art, during his 50 years as an art dealer.
Showing the humour as well as the horror, on the front line and the home front, this exhibition is a curated mix of original art and prints, by both official war artists and amateurs. In a time when the last surviving veterans are no longer with us, it offers us a fascinating first-hand insight into one of the most significant events in modern world history.
Open daily during the festival from Tues – Saturday (closed on Sunday and Monday) between 10am and 5pm
Standard museum admission charges apply: £5 per adult or £10 per family – no prior booking required
