In this study day we discover the art created for various Government Schemes to record and interpret aspects of the First World War at home and abroad and the impact of being an official war artist had on British modernists such as Paul Nash, C.R.Nevinson and Percy Wyndham Lewis. We also look at the jobs women undertook during the war as depicted by artists such as Anna Airy, Flora Lion and Clare Atwood and how they reflect the change of womens role in society. We see how artists such as Lucy Kemp-Welch and Alfred Munnings captured the part horses played during WW1 in their paintings including a portrait of the most famous War horse of all Warrior.
