Conscience and Conflict: British Artists and the Spanish Civil War
- 8 November 2014 — 15 February 2015 *on now
The Spanish Civil War (1936–39) was one of the most significant European conflicts of the twentieth century. Stretching far beyond an internal political clash between the Republicans and General Franco's Nationalists, it united a generation of young writers, poets and artists in political fervour.
In aesthetic terms the artistic response crossed boundaries between Surrealists and abstract artists such as Barbara Hepworth and SW Hayter, and figurative artists such as Ursula McCannell and James Boswell. This exhibition focuses on the impact of the Spanish Civil War on British visual artists such as Edward Burra, Wyndham Lewis, Henry Moore and John Armstrong, examining them alongside international artists such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.
