£19.35

The Great War radically changed the world; both society generally and the public perception of the globe were altered. The role art played within this upheaval is complex.

This course will run at the same time as the Lorenzo Lotto Portraits exhibition at the National Gallery, from 05 November 2018 – 10 February 2019.
