Description

A private view of our special exhibition, ‘Created in Conflict’, followed by a screening of the film, ‘Drawn to War’ at The Station Cinema.

Released in July 2022, the themes of Drawn to War fit perfectly with the subject of our current exhibition, Created in Conflict.

This is your chance to look more closely at our special exhibition, in the company of our curatorial team AND enjoy a visit to the cinema to see the new film about Eric Ravilious; Drawn to War.

This very special event starts at The Green Howards Museum for the  exhibition private view and drinks reception, then moves to The Station Cinema for a screening of Drawn to War.

ABOUT THE FILM

ERIC RAVILIOUS – DRAWN TO WAR a Margy Kinmonth film, is a true story. One of Britain’s greatest landscape artists, Eric Ravilious, is killed in a plane crash while on commission as Official War Artist in Iceland in 1942.  His life is as compelling and enigmatic as his art, set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspire him. This film brings to life this unique and still grossly undervalued British artist caught in the crossfire of war 80 years ago, whose legacy largely sank without trace, until now…

This is the first full length feature documentary about Eric Ravilious, told in his own words through previously unseen private correspondence, made with the blessing of the Ravilious estate. Shot entirely on location in UK, Portugal and Ireland, the film asks what it is to be a war artist, featuring Ai Weiwei, Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry, Robert Macfarlane and many more.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Created in Conflict draws on the museum’s own extensive collection of creative work, bringing a whole range of sketches, watercolours, diagrams, cartoons, propaganda and paintings together with selected poetry and prose.

“EVERY LINE SHOULD BE PUT IN TO EXPRESS SOMETHING.

START SHARPLY AND FINISH SHARPLY. PRESS ON THE PAPER.”

William G Newton, Military Landscape and Target Indication , 1916

The exhibition includes two paintings by one of the most famous war artists of the early twentieth century, Christopher Nevinson. CRW Nevinson was one of a group of official war artists of the First World War, which included Paul Nash, Sir Stanley Spencer and John Singer Sargent; some of the best, and occasionally most avant-garde, British artists of the time.

Nevinson’s ‘The First Searchlights at Charing Cross, 1914-1916’ is on loan from the Leeds Art Fund, and is being displayed publicly for the first time in five years, and ‘Rain and Mud after the Battle’ is on loan from Sheffield Museums Trust.
