For nearly fifty years, Peter Kennard has been making art that comments on war—and in the process, he has become Britain’s foremost political artist and one of the leading figures worldwide in politically committed art. Unofficial War Artist brings together the most powerful and striking of Kennard’s works to accompany a major retrospective that was mounted at the Imperial War Museums in London. The artworks are reproduced in full color and presented in their wider political and historical context through accompanying newspaper clippings, UN reports, historical accounts, and testimony from those who have fought in and suffered from war. The result is a stark, even devastating account of the lasting damage of war and conflict.
