BBC British Art at War 2of3 Walter Sickert and the Sphere of War

British Art at War

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


In the years foregoing 1914, David Bomberg, Walter Sickert and Paul Nash set out to cover a new domain, 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 vocation he tripped and cut rearwards into the trench, breaking his ribs. Stretchered rearwards to England, Nash missed his discipline going over the top at the Donnybrook of Passchendaele. His discipline was wiped out.

Nash was scarred by the war and the ghosts of those experiences haunted his vocation throughout his soul. A lover of mould, Nash became one of Britain's most view artists, embracing latest Surrealism and earlier British retailing, though always tainted by his experiences during two domain wars. A restrictive yet charismatic man, he brought British view painting into the 20th century with his blend of the special and speculative, the smashing and the horrible. An artist who saw the view as not just a domain to cover, but a way into his marrow and mind.

2) Walter Sickert and the Music- Hall of War
Walter Sickert«s inopportune profession as an actor is hanker forgotten and he»s now remembered for his art. But he never the organize behind. Always contours-shifting between roles, Sickert«s presence never stayed still. And his art, too, was in unending transfigurement. Dazzlingly , to a great extent unnerving, hovering on the edge of vehemence. For most, corroboration that Sickert is the godfather of latest British art, but for a few at the fringes, manifestation he»s Jack the Ripper.

But Sickert was no perpetrator, just an unflinching provide, especially, to the cataclysm of Domain War One. Too old to single combat in Flanders, Sickert painted edgy, compelling, exquisite pictures of those who'd been behind. He painted people trying to get on with lives that were being shattered by the controversy. Almost alone of his era, Sickert truly arranged that the music- hall of war was not confined to the trenches.

3) David Bomberg: Prognosticator in No Man's Dock
David Bomberg is now recognised as the most startlingly British painter of his era, but died in nebulousness more than half a century ago.

A Jewish foreigner from London's east end, his inopportune modernist works pushed art to its limits. Fighting at the Somme, David Bomberg watched the domain divided and insufficient apart just like the works of art he had created. Bomberg knackered the place of his soul searching for uncalled-for in an increasingly disordered domain, and his wanderings took him as far as Palestine, before he settled at the end of his soul in Ronda, Spain.

When he died in 1957, embattled and in scarceness, he seemed to be no more than a footnote in the retailing of British art. However, the works that suggestible David Bomberg tell their own information. Combative and iconoclastic, he remains the most elusively British painter of the 20th century.
