Lecture and Curry Lunch – The art of war

Armchair Battlefield Tour – The art of war: military paintings from the Bayeux Tapestry to Terrance Cuneo

Next to religion and portraiture probably more artistic effort has been expended on warfare – battles, campaigns, commanders – than on any other subject.  Were these depictions intended as a historical record? As inspiration? As motivation? As propaganda? Or as just something to hang on your wall?  This talk looks at military art from the Bayeux Tapestry to the Second World War and asks: what does it all mean?

The lecture is delivered by Major Gordon Corrigan MBE. Major Corrigan served in the 6th Gurkha Rifles and the Royal Gurkha Rifles. He is an acclaimed military historian who has published a number of books, and presented a number of TV series. He lectures widely, and conducts battlefield tours worldwide.

The Armchair Battlefield Tour is followed by a two-course curry lunch.
