20 January - 10 June 2018

Contemplate our outstanding collection of War posters by Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) in an exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. Brangwyn's powerful graphics and hard-hitting subject matter raised sympathy and support for British and allied forces and victims of the Great War.
