The First World War was a life-changing event for millions of people, a conflict that elicited responses in literature, music and the visual arts.


Artists depicted the people, places and experiences of the war in official and unofficial capacities, producing formal commissions as well as more personal images. These artworks provide a valuable insight into the events of the war and its impact on those involved.

Picturing Conflict: Art of the First World War presents a small selection of paintings and other artworks that relate to this period, drawn from the City Art Centre’s collection. Featured artists include Eric Robertson, David Young Cameron and John Lavery. The exhibition is being staged as part of the commemorations marking the centenary of the First World War.
