In January 1915 artist Frank Brangwyn produced a set of lithographs to raise money for the newly established St Dunstan’s Hostel for Blind Soldiers and Sailors in London. The prints tell the story of a young soldier going to war, being blinded and hospitalised, and then recuperating and learning a new trade. As an artist Brangwyn purposefully chose emotive subjects that would stir people into action to support the war effort. Join Curator of British Art Dr Jo Meacock as she sets this group of prints in the context of World War I and of the artist’s work.
