Aftermath will explore the impact that World War One had on British, German and French art.

Art was pressed into service for a variety of different reasons in the period after the Great War, from the public memorials by Charles Sargeant Jagger to the depressing medical portraits of wounded soldiers by Henry Tonks.

The physical and psychological scars left on Europe led to critiques by Otto Dix and George Grosz, and the birth of dada and surrealism. The exhibition also looks at how our post-war society eventually began to rebuild itself, which inspired some artists to make a return to classicism and traditional art, whilst others were moved to produce utopian visions of the future.
