Edward Bawden in the Middle East
Available in Stock
Edward Bawden made two tours of duty in the Middle East during the Second World War as one of the British Army's first Official War Artists. It was a significant developmental period for Bawden, who was already an established printmaker and designer - the Middle Eastern watercolours transformed his standing among his contemporaries. Along with high-quality reproductions of these works, Nigel Weaver and Robin O'Neill provide commentaries on Bawden and on the political and military contexts in which he was working.
