Focusing on work by women war artists from the First World War to the Kosovo conflict, the display highlights the museum's outstanding art collection as it explores artists' response to conflict - as eyewitnesses, participants, commentators and as officially commissioned recorders.
Women War Artists illuminates both the constraints and possibilities offered to female artists in war time and offers a unique opportunity to revisit key moments in the last century of Britain's history of war and conflict, through a largely unexplored perspective.
Featured artists will include Anna Airy, one of the first women officially commissioned during the First World War, Dame Laura Knight RA, Linda Kitson and Frauke Eigen.
