The great wars of 1914-18 and 1939-45 left a prominent mark on the world as a whole. The bloodshed and sacrifice have served to inspire artists and creatives ever since.
On this special guided tour, art curator Anna Lavelle will highlight works depicting various aspects of these global conflicts, from the First World War imagery of Richard Tennant Cooper to the Second World War portraits of Terry Frost and Rex Whistler.
The tour will last approximately one hour.
