This first exhibition of its kind explores how Australia, Britain and Canada lived through and recorded the greatest conflict in human history. Paintings and sculpture, including works by Paul Nash, Laura Knight, Sydney Nolan and Alex Colville, explore national and individual experiences during the Second World War.
From the exhilarating heroics of the Battle of Britain and the ghastly horror of Belsen, to the relief of liberation and the boredom of potato-peeling, the men and women that feature in the works on display are shown waiting, preparing, fighting, suffering and celebrating.
