The Neo-Romantics at War

A new display exploring the rise of British Neo-Romantic art during the Second World War and the significant impact of the War on the British landscape and population.

Neo-Romanticism, a predominantly British artistic and literary movement of the 1940s, was intimately connected to the looming presence of war and took inspiration from Britain's landscape and past.

This heritage came under threat during wartime, leading to often sombre and poetic artistic responses.

The display includes fascinating examples of Neo-Romantic artwork from the Museum's collection, including work by Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Keith Vaughan, John Minton and a number of other artists.
