Fishink in The Imperial War Museum London

June 28, 2011

One of the places I headed for in London was the Imperial War Museum mainly because they

had an exhibition called ” Breakthrough ” featuring some of my favourite artists such as

John Piper, Eric Ravilious, Paul Nash etc. The place turned out to be quite a surprise.

Even I was impressed with the planes, tanks, one-man submarines and other military machines there.

Some great pieces from a mix of artists, this one from Eric Ravilious called

Room 29 Home Security Control Painted in 1941.

The Battle of Britain by Paul Nash also from 1941.

Also an entire exhibition dedicated to Women War Artists. Some amazing people I’d not heard of before.

There’s also an exhibition celebrating classic war stories for children such as Carrie’s War

and The Silver Sword, that is on until the end of October, find out more here.

    I went there last summer and really enjoyed the Dig for Victory exhibition. I recently bought book on Evelyn Dunbar’s work.

      It was an unexpectedly great place, loved the light and the old planes suspended from the ceiling. Funnily I’ve just been looking at doing a blog about Evelyn Dunbar and noticed there was a book out lol We think alike !
