ARTISTS UNDER FIRE

This online exhibition was created to mark Remembrance Day 2014 and the centenary of the First World War. It includes a range of images that reveal the effects of the war on soldiers and civilians alike, as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists.

The images displayed are all works of art on paper drawn from the permanent collections of the Western Art Print Room of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. The Museum holds a particularly fine collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century prints and drawings by British artists, many of which are rarely seen.
