Course Participant

To mark 80 years since the onset of the Second World War we shall look at the rich artistic life that continued throughout this period of conflict. Artists such as Paul Nash, Eric Ravilious, Henry Moore and others produced remarkable and telling works. The literature of the war emerged as an accomplished and challenging body of work produced by writers such as W H Auden, Graham Greene and Ruthen Rudd. These artists and authors, as well as many others, will be studied.
