War Artists at Sea



Providing a detailed insight into life at sea during the First and Second World Wars, War Artists at Sea includes the best of the Royal Museums Greenwich’s vast collection of wartime artwork.

Depicting everything from battle scenes to everyday life aboard ships and submarines, this year-long exhibition reveals a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the war effort as portrayed by wartime artists at the heart of the action.

Set in the magnificent 17th-century venue of Queen’s House in Greenwich, War Artists at Sea features exhibits from the likes of Eric Ravilious, Leslie Cole and Norman Wilkinson, who helped to play a part in raising British morale at home and abroad through their work.
