Concealment & Deception: The Art of the Camoufleurs of Leamington Spa 1939-1945

  • 22 July — 16 October 2016 *on now

The civil defence Camouflage Establishment was founded at the start of the war with Nazi Germany to develop camouflage for strategically important installations like factories, power stations and airfields.

Later, in 1941, the CDCE was expanded to include a Naval Camouflage Section and renamed the Camouflage Directorate.

The exhibition presents the work of the camouflage staff - often known as 'camoufleurs' - against the backdrop of life on the 'Home Front'.

This exhibition has been made possible due to the generous support from The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, The Art Fund and FLAG.
