War Map is an exhibition by The Map House presenting fifty years of original pictorial conflict maps.
The exhibition has been curated by a team of experts from The Map House, an established London dealer of original antique and vintage maps, and features a collection of beautifully maintained and highly detailed maps.
The maps are dated 1900 - 1950 a period in history in which the international political landscape was irreversibly changed by regional and global conflicts. Taking in the end of the Boer War, the Russian Civil War and two World Wars, War Map explores the propaganda campaign maps produced during this period.
The exhibited maps not only provide historical insight into the turbulent first half of the twentieth century but also function as extraordinary art pieces.
