Art And The War At Sea

Regular price £10.00 £10.00 Sale

While many publications have engaged with the events, artists and poets associated with war fought on land, the cultural history of the war at sea has been neglected. This original book redresses this imbalance by being the first study to focus on the art of war in the first half of the 20th century from a distinctly naval and maritime perspective.

Drawing on the first-class collections of paintings, works on paper (including drawings, photography and posters) and archival material, such as private papers, journals and memoirs, held at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, the artistic response to the war at sea is analysed in the context of specific focal points such as the major arenas of naval conflict; life on board ships, aircraft carriers and submarines; the experiences of prisoners of war and the response of artists to the commemoration and legacy of key maritime conflicts.

The Editor Christine Riding is Head of Arts and Curator of the Queen’s House at the National Maritime Museum. She was previously Curator of Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-century British Art at Tate Britain, and was Deputy Editor of Art History (Journal of the Association of Art Historians). She is author and editor of Turner & The Sea (2013) which was published to accompany a major exhibition at the National Maritime Museum.
