Paths of Glory

The Imperial War Museum London reopens on 19 July with what it promises to be "the largest First World War art exhibition for almost 100 years". Truth and Memory: British Art of the First World War will run until 8 March 2015, admission free. (CLICK). One of the most outstanding paintings of the show will undoubtedly be the ironically entitled Paths of Glory by official war artist Christopher Nevinson. These two corpses were deemed too realistic for home consumption and the painting was banned. But it was bought for the collection of the Imperial War Museum. BBC war correspondent Allan Little mourns these two young soldiers and others like them (CLICK).
