In The Shadow of War
This exhibition features the work of a generation of artists who rose to prominence in post-war Britain. The early 40s and 50s were marked by austerity and the newly drawn battle lines of the Cold War. In the art world, too, positions became polarized between the claims of realise versus abstraction and between different forms of realism itself. This exhibition explores realism art in its many different guises.
