Celebrates the remarkable experiences and achievements of women war artists from the First World War through to the present day. It considers the importance of female artists as eyewitnesses, participants, commentators and officially commissioned recorders of war, and looks at their experiences both in the war zone and at home.
Key works by artists including Dame Laura Knight, Anna Airy, Evelyn Dunbar, Fiona Banner and Jannane Al-Ani are seen through the prism of the artists' own reflections and life stories, revealing the unique opportunities and constraints they have encountered, and demonstrating the enormous diversity of their responses.
