Alfred Munnings: Memory, the War Horse and the Canadians in 1918

Join art historian Dr Jonathan Black and horse-racing journalist and presenter Brough Scott for an evening of discussion on their new book.


Join art historian Dr Jonathan Black and horse-racing journalist and presenter Brough Scott for an evening of discussion on their new book.

In this exclusive late opening, join us for an evening of talks over a glass of wine and enjoy the chance to view the Alfred Munnings: War Artist, 1918 exhibition after hours.

Alfred Munnings was just finding fame as a portraitist and painter of British rural life when the First World War broke out in 1914. Blind in his right eye, he was denied a role in the Army on medical grounds. But, in 1918, he seized the opportunity to go to France as an official war artist working for the Canadian War Memorials Fund.

Munnings spent two months with the Canadian Cavalry Brigade - commanded by maverick MP, JEB 'Galloper Jack' Seely - until the German offensive began in March 1918. In January 1919, his wartime pictures were exhibited to great acclaim at London's Royal Academy of Arts.

Join Dr Jonathan Black and Brough Scott as they take us on a journey through Munnings' early life and career.
