Artists have always been inspired by the many battles and operations the British Army has undertaken across the globe. However, its engagements in Europe have given rise to some of the most diverse and stunning depictions.
On this special guided tour, art curator Anna Lavelle will highlight some of the intriguing items on display in our new permanent gallery, Conflict in Europe.
Anna will showcase artworks ranging from Lady Butler’s paintings of the Battle of Waterloo to the First World War imagery of Richard Tennant Cooper.
The tour will last approximately one hour.
Anna Lavelle is an art curator at the National Army Museum with principal responsibility for prints, drawings and watercolours. Her research interests include the dissemination of knowledge and artistic practices through prints, as well as conflict and toleration in early modern Europe.
