7 Aug 2014

London's Imperial War Museum has just opened some permanent gallery spaces dedicated to World War One, and also has a separate exhibition about WW1 art on show at the moment.

Truth and Memory, the art show, is being displayed until March 8th next year and has been described as the biggest show focussed on British art about the war for close to 100 years.

The temporary WW1 art exhibition includes more than 120 pieces for visitors to look at. John Singer Sargent and Paul Nash are among the range of artists on show.

The First World War Galleries, meanwhile, opened July 19th and feature more than 1,300 objects, such as diaries, weapons, uniforms and art - as well as a range of other sorts of exhibit.

There is no entrance fee for either of the exhibitions, as the IWM is free to get into. You can find it on Lambeth Road in London.ADNFCR-408-ID-801740742-ADNFCR
