This unique biography celebrates for the first time the range of Evelyn Dunbar’s achievements: depicting the natural world, plants and gardens; notable mural paintings and – above all – her work as the leading woman war artist in the Second World War. She is especially known for her lyrical but unsentimental paintings of the Women’s Land Army.
Dunbar was part of the neglected generation of artists whose lives are now being recognized and reappraised. She is now taking her place alongside her contemporaries, in particular Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman, Charles Mahoney, John Nash, Eric Ravilious, Geoffrey Rhoades and Stanley Spencer.
