Hidden war looks at the impact that World War I had on three artists: sculptor Dora Ohlfsen (‘the reluctant fascist’), painter Weaver Hawkins (‘the ardent pacifist’) and photographer Cecil Bostock (‘the fighting photographer’).

This exhibition in the Gallery’s research library and archive showcases many of the objects – letters, journals, photographs, sketches and personal objects – included in the Gallery’s immersive online story of the same title.
