War Pictures by British Artists: Second Series: Women

Published by the Oxford University Press in 1943, this small book contains many fascinating pictures by official war artists of the wartime activities of women. The foreword by Dame Laura Knight highlights the sudden and startling change brought about by war in what society expected (and did not expect) of its women.

There are 50 pictures in all, pictured in black and white, and by artists many of whom are still well known. These include Laura Knight herself and Edward Ardizzone.

War artists are still employed by the British government and travel with British forces on many dangerous assignments. Despite the quality and immediacy of modern photography, the artist often has the greater insight.

The book is a paperback and measures about 7.5 by 4.75 inches. It is in excellent condition, though there are places where the binding is a little loose, and this is shown in the pictures.

Please take a look at all the full-size pictures.
