Created in Conflict: British Soldier Art From the Crimean War to Today by Holly Furneaux
A publication from one of Compton Verney's fascinating previous exhibitions. Created in Conflict presents a fascinating, involving and moving narrative of how soldiers have responded in artistic terms to the experience and aftermath of war. The breadth of the memories evoked here is astonishing: from Private Thomas Walker in the Crimea in the 1850s to Corporal Nick Johns in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in the 2010s; from a metal bracelet wrought in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp tin 1942 to Major Robin Watt’s Gulf War Sketchbook of 1990.
