British Art at War

Arts Documentary hosted by Andrew Graham-Dixon, published by BBC in 2014 - English narration


In the years earlier 1914, David Bomberg, Walter Sickert and Paul Nash set out to step out a new everybody, but, as the century unfolded, build themselves working in the rubble.

1) Paul Nash: The Ghosts of War
On 25th May 1917, war artist Paul Nash climbed out of his trench to sketch the battlefields of Flanders near Ypres. So focused was he on his effort he tripped and cut rear into the trench, breaking his ribs. Stretchered rear to England, Nash missed his regulate going over the top at the Fracas of Passchendaele. His regulate was wiped out.

Nash was scarred by the war and the ghosts of those experiences haunted his effort throughout his viability. A lover of primitiveness, Nash became one of Britain's most unprecedented vista artists, embracing contemporary Surrealism and ogygian British past, though always tainted by his experiences during two everybody wars. A hermit-like yet charismatic man, he brought British vista painting into the 20th century with his amalgam of the special and romantic, the charming and the mind-boggling. An artist who saw the vista as not just a everybody to step out, but a way into his tenderness and mind.

2) Walter Sickert and the Amphitheatre of War
Walter Sickert«s anciently business as an actor is wish forgotten and he»s now remembered for his art. But he never left-hand the devise behind. Always give form to-shifting between roles, Sickert«s presence never stayed still. And his art, too, was in unending mutation. Dazzlingly unprecedented, strongly disturbing, reserved on the point of fierceness. For most, ammunition that Sickert is the godfather of contemporary British art, but for a few at the fringes, certification he»s Jack the Ripper.

But Sickert was no perpetrator, just an unflinching eyewitness, surprisingly, to the cataclysm of Everybody War One. Too old to squabble in Flanders, Sickert painted edgy, compelling, veiled pictures of those who'd been left-hand behind. He painted people trying to get on with lives that were being shattered by the variance. Almost alone of his production, Sickert truly covenanted that the amphitheatre of war was not confined to the trenches.

3) David Bomberg: Forecaster in No Man's Come
David Bomberg is now recognised as the most startlingly unprecedented British painter of his production, but died in limbo more than half a century ago.

A Jewish migrant from London's east end, his anciently modernist works pushed art to its limits. Fighting at the Somme, David Bomberg watched the everybody rift and succumb apart just like the works of art he had created. Bomberg discharge the remainder of his viability searching for society in an increasingly disordered everybody, and his wanderings took him as far as Palestine, before he settled at the end of his viability in Ronda, Spain.

When he died in 1957, embattled and in inadequacy, he seemed to be no more than a footnote in the past of British art. However, the works that impressionable David Bomberg tell their own horror story. Combative and iconoclastic, he remains the most elusively unprecedented British painter of the 20th century.
