War Artists

By Martyn Lucas

War Artists

Artist Adrian Hill was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum to record the conflict on the Western Front during WWI. This painting of ‘Ruins Between Bernafay Wood and Maricourt’ (Art.IWM ART1663) is in the IWM collection and is one of many works from the Somme. Hill completed his studies after the war, continued to make a living as an artist and wrote many books about painting and drawing. In the 1950s and early 1960s he presented a BBC children’s television programme called Sketch Club.
