Yet, for many, it is his First World War paintings that remain his most haunting. As a war artist, he recorded some of the most emotive scenes of trench warfare to emerge from the Great War. His work brought the reality of life on the frontline home through his drawings and paintings for 'The Sphere' magazine and he became world renowned as he created patriotic works for Britain and America. This compilation brings the power of his work to a new generation to mark the centenary of the First World War. General adult
