Britain’s first official war artist, Muirhead Bone trained at Glasgow School of Art and was posted to France in 1916, arriving during the battle of the Somme.

Through hundreds of exquisite drawings made on the spot and distributed in Britain through popular prints, Bone conveyed the destruction of the western front and its effect upon the men who fought there. Once seen these evocative images are never forgotten.
