Art history

British Art Between Wars

The period between the First and Second World Wars was one of rich and varied creativity in Britain. Throughout the interwar period, British artists explored, questioned and rejected the requirement that to be truly modern was to break with the past. The impact of the First World War was as devastating for the arts as it was for society as a whole. Many artists served in the armed forces during the War and experienced the full horror of the trenches on the front line. Art was never to be the same. We shall study and discuss the work of British artists such as Paul Nash, but also writers like Virginia Woolf and remember the importance of jazz and how we built our houses, drove our cars and listened to the radio.
