The Ashmolean launches a special online exhibition marking Remembrance Day 2014
Frank Brangwyn, Soldiers under Airburst Fire ('Shell'), c. 1919.

OXFORD.- The online display, Artists under Fire: Remembering the Great War 1914–1918 includes a range of images that reveal the effects of the war on soldiers and civilians alike, as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists.

The images displayed are all works of art on paper drawn from the permanent collections of the Ashmolean's Western Art Print Room. The Museum holds a particularly fine collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century prints and drawings by British artists, many of which are rarely seen.

The exhibition explores themes including: Propaganda and Caricature; Boots on the Ground; The War from the Air; Fields of Battle; Tending the Wounded; and In Memoriam.

The artists featured in the online display are: Stanley Anderson; Robert Sargent Austin; Muirhead Bone; Frank Brangwyn; Sydney Carline; George Clausen; Claud Lovat Fraser; Martin Hardie; Archibald Standish Hartrick; Lester George Hornby; Francis Ernest Jackson; Eric Kennington; James McBey; Christopher Nevinson; William Nicholson; William Orpen; Charles Pears; Glyn Warren Philpot; Gwen Raverat; Claude Shepperson; Walter Sickert; Henry Tonks; and Edward Wadsworth.

For conservation reasons, these works cannot be kept on permanent display in the Museum, but they are freely available to anyone wishing to see them.

The Ashmolean is also commemorating the First World War with a special Money Gallery Display, open now until 23 December 2014. Lest We Forget: Commemorating the Great War commemorates the First World War as evidenced in coins, medals and banknotes. On display are commemorative and campaign medals struck to commemorate the Assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, Aerial Bombardment of London, the Sinking of Lusitania, amongst other events. We also show emergency money struck during the war, prisoner-of-war tokens, and paper money issued for the use of the troops.
