People who have saved this event:



Frank Brangwyn was an outstanding poster artist of the First World War. A restored set of his powerful large-scale war posters is on show at the Mercer Art Gallery in Harrogate until January 2015. These images offer both a unique social insight into the propaganda of the period as well as reflecting the artist's personal concerns. This is the first time that the posters, all lithographs that have recently been cleaned and restored, have been displayed by Harrogate Arts and Museums. The posters were donated to the gallery by Harrogate artist and printmaker Oliver Pemsel and the exhibition is curated by Brangwyn expert Dr Elizabeth Horner.
