Alfred Munnings paintings to be dispalyed at The Munnings Museum

Brit News, Celeb

Celebrated as one of England’s finest equestrian painters, Sir Alfred Munnings forged much of his early reputation as a brilliant war artist, serving in eastern France with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in 1918.

Now, for the first time in 100 years, 41 wartime paintings by Munnings are returning to the UK from the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa for the exhibition Behind the Lines: Alfred Munnings, War Artist, 1918 at his former home, Castle House in Dedham (23rd March – 3rdNovember 2019),

In this once-in-a-lifetime display, the paintings will be shown side by side with the surviving sketchbooks that inspired them – the first time those have ever been on public display. More than 150 other works by Munnings—from his boyhood sketches, through his early commercial work, to his iconic horse paintings—will also be on display, offering a complete survey of his life and development as an artist.
