Imperial War Museum in London Explores Achievements of Female War Artists


LONDON.- Women War Artists, a new exhibition at Imperial War Museum London will explore the remarkable experiences and achievements of female war artists from the First World War to the present day.

Highlights from the Imperial War Museum’s outstanding art collection, including challenging contemporary works by Frauke Eigen, Jananne Al-Ani and Fiona Banner, will be shown alongside a significant video installation by Mona Hatoum, in this thought provoking display. As well as key works by female official war artists, recent Second World War acquisitions depicting factory work and the home front from an unofficial perspective will be exhibited. These include watercolours by artists such as Margaret Abbess and Eleanor E
