Paul Gough

The work of Britain’s war artists has been well documented, but Dr Paul Gough’s penetrating survey throws new light on their motivations, responses to the conflict and their unique, and widely varying, interpretations of the effects on the combatants.  His book provides new insights into the work of the major and lesser-known artists of the First World War, including David Bomberg, Muirhead Bone,  Sidney Jones, Henry Lamb, Adrian Hill, Paul Maze, John Nash, Paul Nash, Nevinson, Orpen, William Roberts, William Rothenstein, Stanley Spencer, Harold Williamson
and  Wyndham Lewis.

Magnificent images from the collection of The Imperial War Museum, Tate Britain and other public collections.
