The Great War

Tomorrow the National Portrait Gallery in London opens the first of two exhibitions this year to commemorate the outbreak of World War I: The Great War in Portraits. This runs until 15 June, admission free. Shown is artist William Orpen's Self-portrait (1917). Using drawings, paintings, photos and film, the exhibition presents a wide range of images from "the war to end all wars", including a press photo of Gavrilo Princip, the teenager who began it all by assassinating Archduke Ferdinand (CLICK).
