Art historian Martin Heard explores WWI and its aftermath - a watershed in the history of 20-century art. Avant-garde artists produced an extraordinary range of striking images at the frontline or after the war.

British modernists CRW Nevinson and Wyndham Lewis arguably produced some of their best work during the conflict. German expressionist artists such as Otto Dix, Max Beckmann, and George Grosz later created powerful anti-war images. England’s Stanley Spencer would make monumental works of hope and optimism for the brotherhood of humankind.

About Martin Heard:
After a career in fine art publishing and information technology, Martin has returned to his first love, art history. For the past 10 years, he has travelled and visited art galleries and places of interest to support his research.

Presented in association with the Wellington Decorative of Fine Arts Society.
